Terrence Glenn, a former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, passed away early Monday morning after a fatal car accident in Irving, officials reported.

According to Dallas News, Glenn died around 12:52 am at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

Details of the accident were not immediately released, but NBC-DFW reports that the accident happened around Walnut Hill Lane and Texas 114. Glenn played for the Dallas Cowboys between 2003 and 2007 under coach Bill Parcells - his coach when he was drated by the New England Patriots back in 1996.
