Navy third-string quarterback Rafi Montalvo is in a medically-induced coma after being injured in a single-car accident in Miami on Thanksgiving night.

The freshman was a passenger in the vehicle, and alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

According to Navy athletics spokesman Scott Strasemeier, Montalvo's condition was improving on Sunday.

Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo flew to Miami on Saturday to comfort the family, the Annapolis Capital reported.
