Chyna Thomas, Sister Of NBA Star Isaiah Thomas, Killed In Car Accident

Isaiah Thomas' sister died Saturday morning after a horrific car accident.

Terrible news on this Saturday night out of the state of Washington. 22-year-old Chyna Thomas was killed in a one-car accident early Saturday morning. Thomas is the sister of Boston Celtics star guard Isaiah Thomas -- both are from the Tacoma, Washington area.

According to a report from KIRO-7, Chyna Thomas crashed her 1998 Toyota Camry over a guard rail and into a sign post. Thomas was reportedly not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the accident.

From the report:

Witnesses reported that the car, a 1998 Toyota Camry, was being driven normally at first.

“All of a sudden it started to drift very casually onto the left shoulder,” State Patrol spokesman Trooper Nick King said.

The car traveled about 50 feet partially off the roadway until it hit a Jersey barrier.

“That vaulted the vehicle head-on into the sign post,” King said.

The car came to rest on top of the barrier and against a large metal pole holding a carpool sign on the shoulder of the freeway.

Our thoughts are with the Thomas family at this tragic time.
