*The half brother of Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was killed in a motorcycle crash Thursday night in Tennessee, reports ESPN.
Lance McCoy, 23, was riding his motorcycle at a high rate of speed Thursday night when he collided with a car pulling out of a parking lot.
McCoy was from Madison, which is about seven miles north of Nashville. According to The Tennessean, he is the youngest of three sons of Linda Haynesworth.
The car’s driver, 27-year-old Benjamin Smith of Nashville, told police he didn’t see the motorcycle until impact. Police say a preliminary investigation shows McCoy’s excessive speed was the main cause of the accident.
Albert Haynesworth played college football at Tennessee and spent his first seven pro seasons with the Tennessee Titans. He is in his second season with the Redskins. Haynesworth left the Redskins after calling coach Mike Shanahan with the news Thursday night.
“Obviously, wish his family — giving them all our prayers and thoughts,” Shanahan said Friday following practice, which Haynesworth missed. “I think that’s the main concern right now.”
