Former Raiders and Bengals linebacker Thomas Howard died early this morning, after a high-speed crash on an Oakland interstate which claimed another life as well.
Howard, who was just released by the Falcons last week, was 30 years old.
According to KRON-TV, citing a California Highway Patrol report, Howard’s BMW was traveling at more than 100 mph when it hit the back of a tractor trailer and flew across the median into oncoming traffic.
The driver of one of the other cars he hit, a 55-year-old man, was also pronounced dead at the scene.
Our thoughts are with both families as they deal with the tragic loss.
