Authorities have arrested the man involved in the car cash that killed Patriots running back James White’s father last month.
Playing with heavy hearts, the New England Patriots unfortunately haven’t been able to reward running back James White’s courageous return to the gridiron with wins. The dynamic veteran tragically lost his father, Tyrone, in a car accident last month and missed the team’s next two games to mourn with his family.
The crash also left his mother, Lisa, hospitalized with serious injuries, and White provided some much-need good news this week when he disclosed to reporters that her condition, though the emotional wound is still fresh, is steadily improving.
Not that closure would really make anything better in the wake of such a heartbreaking tragedy, but authorities have reportedly made an arrest over five weeks after the fatal accident. According to Broward Sheriff’s Office, Daniel Tucker Chamblin of Hollywood, FL., was charged with vehicular homicide, reckless driving and speeding.
Chamblin was being held in Broward County Jail and court records did not list an attorney for him after he appeared in court on Friday.
The most damning detail of the accident? Investigators reported that Chamblin was driving 95 miles per hour when his car crashed into the vehicle driven by White’s mother, which was 50 MPH over the speed limit.
To think that the White family endured such an unspeakable loss because someone refused to abide by the laws and was allowed back on the road despite having a history of speeding is nothing short of sickening.
No further updates on Chamblin’s court appearance from Friday have been provided yet, but rest assured we will be right on top of them as soon as they are made available. In the meantime, our thoughts continue to be with the White family.
The Pats would really be coming through in a big way for White if they could upset the Bills on Sunday.
