Default Willie Green's sister, cousin killed in car accident

following game against the Pistons. Sad to hear this. Condolences to Willie and his family.

The sister and cousin of New Orleans Hornets guard Willie Green were killed in an automobile accident in suburban Detroit, just hours after watching Green play in a game against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night.

Green returned to Detroit on Monday morning from Indianapolis, where the Hornets play tonight against the Indiana Pacers and will miss tonight's game, Hornets officials said Monday morning. It is uncertain whether Green, a Detroit native, will miss any other games this week. The Hornets play at home Wednesday night against the New Jersey Nets and on Sunday in New Orleans Arena against the Atlanta Hawks.

Tamara Lynette Green, 30, and her cousing, Gary Benjamin Green, 27, died in the crash, according to Green's father, Willie Sr. Gary Green was driving the vehicle that crashed on southbound Interstate 75 in Troy. The car was apparently traveling at a high rate of speed, Troy Police Lt. Robert Redmond told the Detroit Free Press.
