Baltimore Ravens wider receiver Torrey Smith’s younger brother Tevin was killed in a motorcycle crash in Westmoreland County, Va. Saturday.
A Virginia State trooper arrived at the scene on Route 674 Chatham Lane in the Montross area just before midnight. Police say 19-year-old Tevin L. Jones was traveling eastbound on his 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 when he ran off the right side of the road, striking a utility pole.
Jones, who was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, died at the scene.
According to the Baltimore Ravens, Torrey left the team’s downtown Baltimore hotel shortly after 1 a.m. to be with his family.
Head Coach John Harbaugh issued the following statement:
“This is devastatingly sad, sad news. Torrey and his family are a close, special family, and our hearts and thoughts reach out to all of them. Our hearts ache today. We pray for Tevin, his mother, Torrey and the rest of the family. God bless Tevin.“
Police say alcohol was not a factor. The investigation into the accident continues.
