Tragic news today as former Reds relief pitcher Josh Hancock was killed in a car accident. From STLtoday:
St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Josh Hancock was killed early Sunday in an accident on Highway 40 (Interstate 64), just west of Compton Avenue, authorities said.
Hancock's Ford Explorer slammed into the rear of a tow truck that was parked in the far left westbound lane shortly after 12:30 a.m. The tow truck driver, who was seated in the vehicle at the time, was unhurt.
He told police that his emergency lights were on, and that he honked his horn when he saw the Explorer approaching in his rear view mirror, but that the Explorer didn't slow down or swerve to avoid the collision.
Our hearts are with the friends and family of Hancock, as well as everyone in Cardinals nation. Cards-Reds games won't be the same without Snax.
The Cardinals' game with the Cubs tonight has been postponed until further notice.
