The Dallas car crash that claimed the life of Arizona Cardinals cornerback Jeff Gladney also killed a 26-year-old woman being identified as his girlfriend.

The family of healthcare worker Mercedes Palacios has confirmed she was the other person that died in Monday’s crash along the Woodall Rodgers Freeway in Dallas.

‘It’s just two great souls gone,’ Palacios’s brother, John Paul Figueroa, told Dallas’ NBC affiliate. ‘She was just a loving, selfless person.’

Local sportswriter Matt Thornton identified Palacios as Gladney’s girlfriend. The revelation came after the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department released more information about Monday’s car crash.

Police say a white Mercedes SUV was speeding when it clipped another car, leading to the crash at around 2:30am on Monday. The SUV lost control and ran into a freeway pier beam, killing two people, believed to be Gladney and Palacios.

Video of Jeff Gladney and his girlfriend Mercedes Palacios in the club hours before the accident has also surfaced online and it’s heartbreaking to watch.
