    The father of NFL running back LaDainian Tomlinson was killed in a car accident near Waco, Texas Friday afternoon, the Dallas Morning News reported on its Web site.

    Oliver Tomlinson, 71, was killed at about 12:30 p.m. ET when the pickup truck in which he was a passenger blew a tire and flipped over on the highway, Charlie Morgan, a Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman said.
    The driver of the truck, identified as Ronald C. McClain was rushed to the hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, Morgan said. The 48-year-old McClain is believed to be a relative of Tomlinson's, Morgan said.

    Both men were thrown from the truck, witnesses at the scene said.

    71... Wow. That means he was 44 years old when L.T. was born.

    Tragic news, I am sure LT would have loved to have his dad present if he ever won a Super Bowl. Condolences to his family in this tough time...
