Eddie Griffin #41 of Former Timberwolves forward Eddie Griffin was killed early Friday morning when the vehicle he was driving crashed into the side of a moving train in Houston, the Harris County Medical Examiner's office said today.

Griffin, 25, was driving a Nissan sports-utility vehicle and traveling west when he disregarded a railroad-warning signal, according to the Houston police incident report. Griffin drove through the railroad arm and then struck the side of a Union Pacific train as it traveled south on the tracks at about 1:30 a.m. Friday. The vehicle caught fire as the train stopped.

Griffin, who was driving alone but was not named on the original incident report because authorities needed time to identify the body, died at the scene

It does sound like suicide. He had problems with booze and other things. 1:30 a.m., could have been coming home from the bar and had a couple to many? ESPN reported that the body was so badly burned that they needed dental records to idenify the body. R.I.P. Eddy!!

I know this guy had problems but it is still sad to see something like this happen to someone so young, At least he is free now.

Sad news. He was a stud at Seton Hall. He probably left too early. He did have some games with the T wolves where he showed his potential...heck of a shotblocker for his size, incredible timing, excellent work on the boards....The NBA takes a toll on bodies and just as importantly minds. A year ago at this time Eddie was the butt of many jokes with his other driving accident in Minneapolis

Just really sad news losing someone so young frown.gif

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
