Prosecutors say they will review evidence this week and are moving "quickly and expeditiously" toward deciding whether to charge the driver who caused a three-car crash in Maryland over the weekend that killed a Minnesota Vikings rookie and two of his former high school teammates, Paul Walsh of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

Cornerback Khyree Jackson, the 108th overall pick in this year's NFL draft, died in the wreck shortly after 3:10 a.m. Saturday in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Upper Marlboro, the Maryland State Police said. Also killed were fellow vehicle occupants Anthony "A.J." Lytton Jr., 24, and Isaiah Hazel, 23.

Police said Hazel was driving a Dodge Charger, with Jackson in the front passenger's seat and Lytton in the back, when the driver of an Infiniti Q50 tried to change lanes on northbound Pennsylvania Avenue and speed past the Charger. The Q50, driven by 23-year-old Cori Imani Clingman, struck the Charger and sent it sliding off the road and hitting tree stumps, according to police.

Clingman also hit a Chevrolet Impala, the police said. Neither Clingman nor her two passengers were hurt. The Impala's driver also escaped injury, the police added.

The police said investigators "believe alcohol may have been a contributing circumstance in the crash."

Denise Douglas, spokeswoman for the Prince George's County State's Attorney's Office, told the Star Tribune on Monday that prosecutors "are definitely moving quickly and expeditiously" toward deciding whether to charge Clingman.

"An early evidentiary review has been scheduled for this week," Douglas said.

"Our office continues to work diligently with [the State Police] on this ongoing investigation," she added. "We only have initial reports, which do not include the [blood alcohol content], which has to be developed from the medical records in this case. We have not yet received those yet."ngman has been cited twice since 2018 for speeding, including in one instance when she was ticketed for going 100 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone.
