The incident that snatched the loving sister of Isaiah Thomas who was well known in party circles in the area and was famous on social media was apparently very powerful. Authorities claim that the impact of the accident was so powerful that the 22-year old girl passed away on the spot itself before being taken to the hospital.
The Boston Celtics point guard’s sister was reportedly driving to Tacoma, where she lived when the accident occurred. A few reports suggest that the Chyna Tomas, some six years younger than her famed brother might have fallen asleep when her car veered off the road at around 5 a.m. on April 15.
Authorities later told the media that the girl was actually not wearing her seat belt. Notwithstanding the accident, reports suggest that the point guard for Celtics will take to the court in his team’s crucial match against Chicago Bulls in Boston.
A report in the Tacoma News-Tribune while talking about the incident says that the 22-year old half sister of the point guard was driving along I-5 in Washington when her car veered off of the road. A witness told the newspaper that Chyna’s 1998 Toyota Camry that she had been driving normally until it began drifting 50 feet into a barrier and metal pole.
A report in KIRO7 while quoting State Patrol spokesman Trooper Nick King said, “All of a sudden it started to drift very casually onto the left shoulder…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.
The entire family seems to have been shattered by the sudden death of the girl. Her father, James Thomas, while speaking to Boston Herald said, “It’s a crucial time for our family.” He added that he didn’t know if his son would be flying out to Tacoma to be with his family. The point guard was informed about the deadly news by his teammate Avery Bradley after afternoon practice session.
