Everyone keep Amar’e Stoudemire in your prayers. The NBA star’s older brother Hazell Stoudemire died in a car accident early this morning in Florida.

The accident happened on Route 27 in Lake Wales. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Stoudemire was driving at a “high rate of speed” when he collided with the rear of a tractor 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.


This is so sad to hear. Another young life gone too soon. RIP 🙁
