Police arrested the driver, Felipe Castelblanco, and have charged him with vehicular homicide by intoxication.

Barnett has been on Injured Reserve after getting shoulder surgery in late October. After this tragedy, he’ll likely be away from the team for a while. Our thoughts go out towards the Barnett family.
