White, the NFL father who manages James White’s comeback from the New England Patriots, was announced dead on the scene. His wife, Lisa, who was also in the car, was flown by another person to the hospital, according to the office. Lisa White is still in the hospital.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said lawmakers responded to the scene of a two-car crash in Copper City, Florida, where they found one car had overturned and the other was on fire. First responders provided emergency medical assistance and put out the car fire.
Shortly before the Patriots match Sunday night, James White was listed as inactive in his team’s match against the Seattle Seahawks. After the Patriots landed in the game, White’s teammate Devin McCurty ran to the camera at the end zone and shouted, “2-8, we love you, brother!” James White wears No. 28.
Former James White teammate Tom Brady was among many in the NFL community who expressed their condolences to the White family.
Brady said on Twitter: “The heartbreak to hear the news of the tragedy of my great friend and forever teammate SweetFeet_White. There are few people who come into your life and do everything the right way.” “James is one of them. Kind, kind, affectionate, fiercely competitive and hardworking. His parents raised an amazing son. We all mourn James because he’s going through this difficult time. I love you, friend.”
Traffic homicide investigators at the Broward County Police Office are investigating the accident.
