A&M Freshman Killed in Car Crash Tweeted About 22-Hour Drive

Defensive lineman Polo Manukainiu and two others die when car rolls over

Texas A&M defensive lineman Polo Manukainiu posted a chilling Tweet before embarking on what would be his last trip, on Monday.

As I told you earlier, he was one of three teens to lose their lives when the Toyota Sequoia they were in rolled over on the U.S. 550.

The player's high school teammate and cousin Gaius Vaenuku also died in the crash. The latter was set to start playing football for Utah this year.

“22 hour drive back to Texas on no sleep - oh my,” Manukainiu announced before leaving Utah for Texas, as relayed by Bleacher Report.

According to Aggie Athletics, Manukainiu and 13-year-old Andrew Uhatafe were ejected from the car when it rolled over a few times and died on the spot. Vaenuku was pronounced dead as he was being taken to a hospital.
