A second video also showed the same scene.

“wtf I literally passed by the Terrence Clarke accident on my way home…” wrote the man who posted it. However, he later deleted that video.

WKYT reported that according to Los Angeles police, the accident happened at 2:10 p.m. Pacific time when Clarke, speeding, ran a red light and hit another car before slamming into a utility pole and a wall. Clarke “was not wearing his seatbelt properly,” police told WKYT, and was alone in the vehicle.

Another player, BJ Boston, was in a car behind him and was uninjured, according to Kentucky Sports Radio.

Clarke submitted his name for the 2021 NBA draft in March, and he and Boston had both signed with Klutch Sports, WKYT reported.


Clarke & Boston Had Been Working out Before the Crash

Tarek Fattal of the LA Daily News wrote on Twitter, “CONFIRMED: Brandon Boston Jr. is OK. Sierra Canyon basketball assistant confirms Boston is OK. Boston was reportedly driving behind Terrence Clarke when Clarke was involved in a deadly accident.”

According to WKYT, Clarke and BJ Boston had been working out together prior to the crash. Clarke died on the way to Northridge Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the station reported.

Clarke’s mother was at his side when he passed on Thursday. He was 19 years old.”


Coach Brad Stevens Cut a Press Conference Short Upon Hearing the News

Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens “said he just heard the Terrence Clarke news and isn’t up to talking about tonight’s game. He noted that Clarke is a Boston kid and that his son looks up to Clarke,” according to Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports.

He cut a post-game press conference short.

Clarke declared for the 2021 draft in March, saying, “As an adolescent, having the privilege to put on the Kentucky uniform and play in front of the BBN was always a lifelong goal of mine. Although it was hindered due to things out of my own control, the experience is something I will keep with me forever. … I hope to make you all proud as a I pursue my dreams.”
