Per a report on Bengals blog Stripe Hype Howard passed away in a fatal car accident on interstate highway 880 this morning. I pasted the details of the crash below. "The incident was reported on Highway 880 south of Fifth Avenue at 12:50 a.m., CHP Officer Daniel Hill said. Witnesses said the driver of a gray BMW 750Li sedan, identified as Howard, was driving north on the highway at more than 100 mph when he lost control and collided with the rear of a semi-truck in the left lane, according to the CHP. The BMW launched into the air and crossed the center median onto southbound Highway 880, Hill said." Truly a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
