Former NFL player Aaron Hernandez, 49-year-old uncle was killed in Bristol in a moped accident early Saturday morning.
Authorities said around 1:00 a.m. Robert J. Valentine was driving a moped north on Central Street near Church Avenue when he hit the curb on the right side of the road.
Valentine, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from the moped and landed in a nearby driveway.
Emergency responders arrived at the scene just after 1 a.m., and attempted to treat Valentine, but he died before he could be transported to the hospital, The Hartford Courant reported.
Valentine was the brother of Terri Hernandez, Aaron’s mother, according to NBC Connecticut
The accident came nearly a month after another Hernandez uncle was killed in a car crash in Farmington, Conn., just days after Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder in Massachusetts in the June 17 slaying of Odin Lloyd, 27, a semi-professional football player.
