Baltimore Ravens cornerback Tray Walker died Friday after being critically injured in a dirt bike crash in Miami Thursday night, his agent told news outlets.

Walker, 23, was riding an off-road dirt bike without a helmet or headlights at around 8 p.m. when he collided with a Ford Escape SUV at an intersection, Detective Dan Ferrin told WBAL. Walker was wearing dark clothing, including a Ravens jersey, Ferrin said.

He was taken to a trauma center following the crash, according to Miami-Dade police. The woman driving the SUV was not hurt.

Ferrin noted that motorcycles, including dirt bikes, are required to have headlights and a license plate.

Police said neither drugs nor alcohol appeared to be factors in the crash. Walker died of serious head injuries sustained in the collision, his agent told NFL reporter Ian Rapoport Friday.

"Tray was a young man with a good and kind heart. He was humble and loved everything about being part of the Ravens' team," coach John Harbaugh said in a statement.

 On Twitter, players and fans expressed their grief and offered condolences.
