The accident happened on Route 27 in Lake Wales. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Stoudemire was driving at a "high rate of speed" when he collided with the rear of a tractor trailer. He died on the scene. The Florida Highway Patrol says Stoudemire was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident and they are unsure if alcohol was a factor.
Our hearts go out to Amar'e and his family during this difficult time. Rest in Peace Hazell.
