An uncle of Aaron Hernandez was killed in a moped crash in Bristol, Conn., early Saturday morning, WFSB in Bristol reports.
49-year-old Robert Valentine was pronounced dead at the scene after being thrown from his moped during a crash. Valentine was not wearing a helmet and his head against a curb, police told WFSB.
Valentine is the brother of Hernandez’s mother, per the report.
This is the second time in a month that a relative of Hernandez has died in a crash on the road. Last month, the husband of Hernandez’s cousin died in a car crash.
What a terrible month for the Hernandez family.
