LAWRENCE, Kan. — Former Kansas basketball player Gethro Muscadin was taken to Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka after a car crash in Osage County, Kansas Thursday morning.
Muscadin was the passenger in a vehicle that was southbound on the Kansas Turnpike when it went off the road, rolled multiple times, and came to a rest in the fence line, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.
Muscadin is reported to have serious injuries. The crash took place just after 3 a.m. on Interstate 335.
“It’s bad,” Kansas head basketball coach Bill Self said.
Self said Muscadin called him at 9:56 p.m. He did not answer because he wasn’t near his phone.
“Gethro, he’s definitely fighting for his life,” Self said. “It would be a very, very, very, very long recovery if he’s able to get through this. So I’m praying for a miracle.”
Self said the driver of the vehicle, a friend of Muscadin, is expected to be OK. Self tweeted about the former player Thursday afternoon.
Muscadin played in 12 games for the Jayhawks in the 2020-21 season before transferring.
