NBA’s Isaiah Thomas Sister Dies In Car Accident
Very sad news. NBA star Isaiah Thomas’ 22-year-old sister, Chyna J. Thomas, has died. Reportedly, she was involved in a fatal one-car accident on Interstate 5 in Federal Way Saturday morning and died at the scene. According to a report,
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.
Chyna Thomas’s Facebook page’s profile lists her a package handler for Federal Express and a former student at Tacoma’s School of the Arts.
Isaiah Thomas is a point guard for the Boston Celtics. The following statement from NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was tweeted.
