  • Isiah Robertson was killed in a car crash in Texas on Thursday Dec. 6 2018

According to a report from NFL.com, former NFL linebacker Isiah Robertson was killed in a vehicle crash near Dallas on Thursday night.

Isiah Robertson, a four-time first-team All-Pro for the Los Angeles Rams and one of the best linebackers of the 1970s, was killed in a limousine crash on Thursday.

A statement from the Texas Department of Public Safety reportedly said that Robertson was driving a limo entered a curve at an unsafe speed due to the rain, skidded out to a stop, then was hit by a pick-up truck into an oncoming vehicle in the other lane. Central time, Robertson was traveling north on State Highway 198 in a 2001 Lincoln Limousine when he took a curve at an "unsafe speed", according to the DPS.

It veered off the road and skidded sideways before coming to a stop partially on the road. The impact sent Robertson's auto into oncoming traffic, where it was struck again by a 2018 Hyundai Sonata.

Earlier in the evening, Robertson was at the Grand Prairie High School to give a speech at a banquet for the football team, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The pickup driver was treated and released from a Tyler hospital, and the Sonata's driver was not injured. The other vehicle driver was unhurt.

A Louisiana native, Robertson was selected with the No. 10 overall pick out of Southern University by the Rams in the 1971 NFL Draft.

The Rams drafted Robertson 10th overall out of Southern University in the 1971 National Football League draft and saw him blossom into a six-time Pro Bowler and 1971 Defensive Rookie of the Year. He remained with the Rams through 1978, then played from 1979 to 1982 for the Buffalo Bills. Those Rams teams won six straight NFC West titles from 1973-78.

Robertson told the Los Angeles Times in 2007 that he struggled with a crack cocaine addiction during his previous year in the NFL.

He was also the executive director of the drug treatment center Isaiah House in Mabank.
