Jeron Lewis' Injuries Caused By Apparent Head Injury

The Evanston Courier & Journal has more information on the injury that led to Southern Indiana layer Jeron Lewis’ death.

At approximately 9:05 p.m., Lewis lay motionless after his feet became tangled and he tumbled to the floor of the Owensboro Sportscenter and hit his head, multiple witnesses said.

He lay prone with his hands outstretched above his head briefly as trainers from both teams ran to him. Then he began convulsing as they tried to secure him.

After the movement subsided, the 6-foot-8, 260-pound Lewis was placed on a backboard and gurney and taken to Owensboro Mercy Health System by ambulance, where he was pronounced dead at 9:52 p.m.

Unaware of what was happening, the Eagles actually finished the game, a 74-69 win over Kentucky Wesleyan. They heard the news immediately following.
