TRAGIC: NBA star's brother killed in a car crash

THE BROTHER of basketball star Amar’e Stoudemire was reportedly killed in a car crash yesterday.

Hazell Stoudemire was allegedly driving at high speeds when his SUV lost control and hit a tractor's trailer. The 35-year-old, who was reportedly not wearing a seat belt, died at the scene, in Lakeland, Florida.

Amar’e of the New York Knicks is believed to be taking a leave of absense as he mourns his brother’s death. No date has been confirmed for his return to the game.

Knicks coach, Mike D’Antoni, said: “Our thoughts and prayers and everything’s with him, and whatever time he needs to take, he’ll take, and then we’ll get him back as soon as possible."

Police are allegedly running tests to determine whether alcohol played a role in the fatal crash.
