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

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.
