The site reports that Jackson was riding his Kawasaki motorcycle at a “high rate of speed” on highway U.S. 51 in his hometown of Tangipahoa around 1 a.m. when a 20-year-old woman reversed out of a parking spot into both lanes of the highway, colliding with the former NFL star. ABC2News.com additionally reported that the impact was so severe that Jackson’s motorcycle penetrated through the driver’s side, killing the driver, Destiny Alexus Gordon, as well.
