A witness to the car accident that killed Dallas Cowboys player Jerry Brown Jr. said she had to beg Cowboys lineman Josh Brent to pull his friend from the burning car. In a video posted on dallasnews.com, Stacee McWilliams said she arrived on the scene to find Brent pacing on the side of the road while Brown was calling from the overturned, burning 2007 Mercedes. "Jerry was alive," McWilliams said. "He was hurt. He was calling out and his on friend walked away." Brown was later pronounced dead at an area hospital and Brent, 24, has been charged with intoxication manslaughter. An Irving police spokesman said officers arrived at the scene to find Brent dragging his injured friend away from the car. However, McWilliams said that picture doesn't tell the whole story. "Josh Brent is not a hero," McWilliams said. Brent's attorney, George Milner, disputed McWilliams' description of the first moments following the wreck. "That is absolutely false," Milner told dallasnews.com "What I've been told is that Jerry Brown was never conscious after the accidentshe better be careful with this one." The team attended a private memorial Tuesday for Brown, who was a linebacker on the practice squad. Brent, who was also a college teammate of Brown's, was expected to attend the service. The two players were returning home from a party around 2 a.m. Saturday when Brent's car struck a curb on Highway 114 in Irving and skidded out of control. McWilliams said she ran up to Brent to make sure he was OK and initially thought him to be the only person involved in the accident. However, after hearing Brown's screams from inside the vehicle, McWilliams said she pleaded with Brent to get his friend out of the car. "Brent looked at me and said, 'He won't get out of the car.' And I said, 'Get him out of the car. You have to save him.'" McWilliams said she continued to beg Brent to save his friend and finally ran to her car to get her phone. She returned to find Brown lying in the middle of the road, alone. "He Brent didn't say 'Come on, hang in there,' hold his hand," McWilliams said. "That's what upsets me most at this point. He abandoned him." McWilliams said she thinks Brent was in a state of shock, but said it does not excuse his initial inaction to the scene. "He may have been in shock, but he was very coherent at the time," McWilliams said. Follow Keith Whitmire on Twitter: @Keith_Whitmire
