According to the Tacoma News Tribune, Chyna J. Thomas — the 22-year-old sister of Boston Celtics star point guard Isaiah Thomas — was killed in an auto accident on Interstate 5 in Washington on Saturday morning.
Per the Washington State Patrol, the car was operating normally until it began to drift off the Interstate. The car eventually came to a stop when it hit a barrier off of the side of the road.
The report says that Thomas was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
Isaiah Thomas was the NBA’s third leading scorer during the regular season. His Celtics are set to face the Chicago Bulls on Sunday in Round 1 of the Playoffs.
