Thomas Williams, the father of Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Dan Williams, was killed in a car accident this weekend as he traveled to New Orleans to watch his son play.

A Cardinals spokesperson tells USA Today that Dan Williams' mother and sister were also in the car, but survived the crash. The Williams family is from Memphis, Tenn., which is about a six-hour drive from New Orleans.

Dan Williams did not play in the Cardinals' 31-7 loss to the Saints on Sunday. 

In this time of a great tragedy, the Cardinals' official team Twitter account says it all.
