Patriots who escaped James White’s father died in a crash in Florida

Seattle – The Patriots who fled James White’s father, Tyrone, were killed in a car crash in South Florida on Sunday, the Broward Sheriff’s Office confirmed to the Globe.

Tyrone White was captain of the Miami-Dade Police Department. He was pronounced dead on the spot.

Broward’s sheriff’s office said in a statement that two victims were airlifted to the hospital after the incident in Cooper City, southwest of Fort Lauderdale.

White’s mother, Lisa, was also reportedly in the car and in critical condition.

White was informed of the incident and was inactive for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.

Captain of the Patriots and one of the most popular players on the team, White is one of the best defenders in the league.

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and assistant coach Troy Brown cuddled with running Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead and JJ Taylor in a very emotional moment.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had a message in support of White before the game, tweeting, “I’m praying for you, bro.”

It was a tragic week for the Patriots with the death of coach Bill Belichik’s mother, Janet, last Monday and Belichik’s longtime girlfriend, Linda Holiday, who lost her father days later.
