Baltimore Ravens player Tray Walker passed away on Friday after he was involved in a dirt bike accident in Florida the day before.

The 23-year-old was heading west on Northwest 75th Street on a Honda dirt bike when he collided with another vehicle according to the Miami-Dade Police Department. The accident occurred at about 7:50 p.m. on Thursday, and police said Walker's bike did not have headlights and that he was wearing dark clothing.

The corner-back was originally drafted into the Ravens in 2015 and subsequently played eight games last season. Tribues have been pouring in since the news of his death broke.
