Amar’e Stoudemire’s brother killed in a car accident In Florida

New York Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire was mourning the death of his older brother Monday, who was killed in an early-morning car accident in Florida.

The Knicks confirmed that the forward took a leave of absence to fly to Florida to be with family after learning that Hazell Stoudemire had passed away.

The Florida Highway Patrol said Hazell Stoudemire was fatally injured after colliding at a “high rate of speed” with the rear of a tractor-trailer on Route 27 in Lake Wales, TMZ reported.

The 35 year old, who the officials said was not wearing a seat belt, died at the scene.
