NFL Player Killed in Car Crash!
Thomas Howard, 30, passed away when his vehicle ran into the back of a semi-truck near Alameda, Calif., causing a huge highway collision — and had been cut from the Falcons a week before the crash.
Thomas’ BMW was going about 100 mph,. He lost control of his vehicle and hit a semi-truck, which caused his BMW to fly across the median and hit a Chevrolet and Honda.
Thomas and the driver of the Honda, Zeng Long Liu, 64, immediately died at the scene on Interstate Highway 880.
Sadly, Thomas signed with the Falcons in October, and was cut from the team on Nov. 12 after playing only two games. The reason for his release was to make room on the team for linebacker Sean Weatherspoon.
