Utah State Aggies defensive end Brady Holt was involved in a one-car accident Saturday afternoon near Willard, Utah, per Steve Luhm of the Salt Lake Tribune.

"Brady has been unconscious since they found him," Holt's mother Christy wrote on social media Monday (via Luhm). "This is what is most concerning to the doctors. They need him to wake up. We are praying for miracles for Brady. Thank you to all who have reached out to us, his sisters and our family. He is in the biggest fight of his life."

The Aggies released a statement on Twitter:

The Utah Highway Patrol said Holt's SUV struck large wooden spools in a construction zone before it went back across the road and rolled in the median, per Mark Green of Fox 13 in Salt Lake City. Holt wasn't wearing a seat belt, and he was ejected from the vehicle. Paramedics flew him to Ogden Regional Hospital after reporting to the scene.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.
