 Former Black Queens player Patricia Ofori was killed in a car accident on Wednesday in Huntsville in the United States.

The 29-year-old, who played in two World Cups for Ghana, lost control of her Ford Mustang while driving south on Pulaski Pike just outside Huntsville.

Her car slid into the northbound lane, where it was hit by a pickup truck and caught fire.

Patricia Ofori was an alumini of Alabama A&M University where she excelled in a football and studies.

"This is the biggest shock of my life," A&M women's soccer coach Frank Davies said. "It's unbelievable."

Ofori, 29, played for the Bulldogs from 2005-2007 and led the team to the 2007 Southwestern Athletic Conference championship and a berth in the NCAA Tournament.

She was a second-team All-SWAC selection in 2005 and also played on two World Cup teams with Ghana.

According to Diane Wilkinson Snoddy, an instructor at A&M, Ofori, who was in graduate school, was on the way to class when the accident happened.

"She was a wonderful person and one of the world's great soccer players," Snoddy said.

Ofori started her career in Ghana with Mawuena Ladies before she was called into the national team in 2003.
