This is tragic, and our prayers go out to the family. The sister of Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas was killed Saturday morning in a one-car accident outside Seattle.
Chyna J. Thomas was 22 years old when she was killed around 5 a.m. on southbound Interstate 5 near South 288th Street in Federal Way, according to the News Tribune.
Witnesses reported that the car, a 1998 Toyota Camry, was being driven normally at first.The Celtics are scheduled to play the Chicago Bulls in the NBA Playoffs Sunday in Boston.
“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.
