New York Knicks power forward Amar’e Stoudemire is still suffering from the loss of his brother Hazell, who was killed in a car crash on Monday morning.
Amar’e spoke out and hit up Twitter nation to thank all his fans for their thoughts and prayers.
Yesterday we reported that Amare’s older brother Hazell died in a car accident on Florida’s Route 27 in Lake Wales.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Stoudemire was driving at a “high rate of speed” when he collided with the rear of a tractor-trailer.
He died on the scene. The Florida Highway Patrol said that Hazell was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
Our hearts go out to Amar’e and his family during this difficult time. Rest in Peace Hazell.
