Former NBA Player Rasual Butler Killed In A Car Accident

Former NBA swingman Rasual Butler and his wife, Leah LaBelle, were reportedly killed in a single-car accident in Studio City, CA early Wednesday morning.

According to TMZ, the 38-year-old lost control of his Range Rover around 2:30 a.m and hit parking meters before proceeding to hit a wall. The car eventually rolled over and came to rest in a store parking lot. L.A. police told NBC Los Angeles that the car was “traveling at speeds two to three times higher than the limit.”

Drafted in 2002 by the Miami Heat in the second round, the La Salle legend and Philly native played for eight teams in his 13-year NBA career–including the Hornets, Clippers, Bulls, Raptors, Pacers, Wizards and Spurs.
