Tonight, James White was expected to suit up to play the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football, but his change of plans would take a quick turn. White found out that his father Tyrone a captain with the Miami-Dade Police Department was killed in a car accident.
Upon Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies’ arrival, they located the crash involving two vehicles. One vehicle was flipped over and the other was on fire. BSO deputies and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue personnel provided medical assistance to the victims and extinguished the fire in the vehicle.
BSO Air Rescue responded and assisted in transporting two of the three victims. The third victim of the crash, identified as Miami-Dade Police Captain Tyrone White, was pronounced deceased on scene, according to Channel 10 News.
His mother was also in the accident and is in critical condition according to Andy Slater.
White has been a member of the Patriots his entire career since they selected him with a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Please pray for James’ Mother tonight, and pray for James’ family.
