This morning word came that Hazell Stoudemire, the 35-year-old brother of the power forward, died in a car crash in Florida.
Reports say Stoudemire has already left the team and is on his way to meet with his family in Florida and will miss tonight’s game against the Utah Jazz.
According to an Associated Press report, the Florida Highway Patrol said that Hazell Stoudemire was driving a Cadillac Escalade north on U.S. 27 in Lake Wales, Fla., at a high rate of speed and collided with the rear of a tractor trailer at around 1:45 a.m. ET. The police said that he was not wearing a seatbelt and was declared dead at the scene.
We send our condolences to the Soudemire family.
