Stallworth issues statement on accident

Four days after he was involved in an auto accident that killed a pedestrian, wide receiver Donte Stallworth issued a statement through the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday.

“My family and I are grief stricken over the tragic accident which occurred Saturday on Miami Beach where Mario Reyes sadly lost his life,” the statement read. “My thoughts and prayers are with the Reyes family during this incredibly difficult time. Unfortunately, since this accident is still under police investigation, I cannot comment further on the matter at this time.”

No charges have been filed against Stallworth, who hit 59-year-old Mario Reyes on Saturday morning on a busy causeway linking Miami and Miami Beach. According to The AP, Miami Beach police are awaiting the results of the toxicology report, which are expected to be released by the end of the week.
