Eufaula wreck victims identified, remembered

The Eufaula Police Department has released the names of the two victims who died from injuries sustained in a Monday wreck near the South Eufaula Avenue/Paul Lee Parkway intersection.

The victims were identified as Najee Brown, 25, and Marlon Brown, 20, both of Eufaula. They were reportedly brothers.

The wreck occurred just after 6 p.m. and involved two vehicles. The two victims were in a Honda Accord, and the other driver, who was not injured, was in a Jeep Wrangler.

Officers are not releasing any additional information on the incident at this time. The Barbour County District Attorney’s Office is also investigating the wreck.

According to Eufaula High coach Dan Klages, both Najee and Marlon were well liked among teachers and students. Najee was a defensive lineman for the football team in 2004, the year Klages was promoted to head coach. Marlon won the scholastic award for the junior varsity basketball team in 2009.

“It’s a shame to see young people of this caliber no longer with us,” Klages said. They were ‘Yes sir, no sir’, respectful kids – the ones you expected to be successful in life.”
