Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas’ Sister Killed in Car Accident

#ChynaThomas, sister of Boston Celtics point guard, #IsaiahThomas, has been killed in a one-car accident. 

The News Tribune reports:

Chyna Thomas died at the scene of the accident on the shoulder of I-5, according to the Washington State Patrol who identified her.

The wreck occurred around 5 a.m. on southbound Interstate 5 near South 288th Street, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Witnesses reported that the car, a 1998 Toyota Camry, was being driven normally at first.

“All of a sudden it started to drift very casually onto the left shoulder,” State Patrol spokesman Trooper Nick King said.

The car traveled about 50 feet partially off the roadway until it hit a Jersey barrier.

“That vaulted the vehicle head-on into the sign post,” King said.

The car came to rest on top of the barrier and against a large metal pole holding a carpool sign on the shoulder of the freeway.

The State Patrol reports that Chyna Thomas was not wearing her seat belt.

No word on whether or not Isaiah will play in the playoff game against the Bulls tomorrow. Prayers to their family at this time.
