So sad. Â Our condolences to Amar’e & his family. Â Hazell Stoudemire, the older brother of NBA starÂ Amar’e Stoudemire, died early this morning in aÂ car accidentÂ in Florida.
TheÂ accidentÂ happened on Route 27 in Lake Wales.Â According toÂ the Florida Highway Patrol,Â Stoudemire was driving at a “high rate of speed” when he collided with the rear of a tractorÂ trailer.
He died on the scene.
The Florida Highway Patrol says 35-year old Stoudemire was not wearing a seat belt when he smashed into the big rig … and they are unsure if alcohol was a factor.
Story developing …
