The brother of New York Knicks star Amare Stoudemire died in a car accident early Monday morning in Florida, a team spokesman confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com.
Hazell Stoudemire was driving at a high rate of speed and collided with the rear of a tractor trailer, the Florida Highway Patrol told TMZ.com. The police told the website that the 35-year-old was not wearing a seatbelt.
The team said that Stoudemire is traveling to Florida to be with his family and will not be with the team for Monday night's game against the Jazz in New York.
