A University of Oregon football player was charged with felony hit-and-run in a fatal incident that occurred earlier in the week, police said Wednesday.

Daylen Amir Austin, 19, was arrested in the incident, Eugene police said. The crash occurred on Monday, and the victim was a 46-year-old man, police added.

"This is a complex investigation and EPD is still gathering information to be submitted to the Lane County District Attorney’s Office for a final charging decision," police said in a Facebook post.

Austin is a defensive back for the Ducks. He played in three games for Oregon during the 2023 season and recorded three tackles and one pass defended.
