Someone told me this morning that he died in a car accident, but I can't find anything that says anything about it. Said they heard it on the radio, but something that big would be on the internet (or at least I thought)

anyone hear anything about this?

The brother of Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne was killed Sunday when the delivery truck he was driving crashed into a highway guardrail.

Rashad Wayne was pronounced dead at the scene, said James Gallagher, a spokesman for the Kenner Police Department.

Police responded to a call at 10:15 a.m. Sunday about a wreck on westbound Interstate 10. Officers found a Capital City Produce Company truck stopped in the highway's right lane and found the 32-year-old Wayne in the cab with a severe head injury.

A preliminary investigation determined that the truck was traveling in the left lane on the upramp of the interstate bridge, but crossed three lanes as it started fishtailing and then hit the right retaining wall, Gallagher said.

"It slid along the top of the wall on its side a short distance before landing back on its wheels across the lanes leading to Interstate 310," he said.

Rashad Wayne is from Baker, a bedroom community north of Baton Rouge. An autopsy will be performed later to determine the exact cause of his death.

His brother, Reggie, a New Orleans native, is in his sixth year with the NFL. Wayne played in the Colts 21-14 home victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday and then boarded a plane for Louisiana, Indianapolis television station WISH reported.
