Today was a rough day for Pelicans and Thunder fans across the world.
Ingrid Williams, the wife of Oklahoma City Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams, is dead at age 44, the team announced Wednesday.
Ingrid Williams was involved in a car crash Tuesday night in Oklahoma City when she was hit head-on by a car that crossed over the center lane.
Monty and Ingrid Williams have five children ranging in age from 5 to 17 years old.
The Thunder forward joined his teammates for a moment of silence for Ingrid Williams before their game against New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night.The Thunder's Anthony Morrow, who also played for Williams with the Pelicans, spoke fondly of Ingrid, saying "In my opinion, God called one of his true angels back home," Morrow said. "She was the person you could always go to with anything. Coach Williams as well. Those two are the standard when it comes to marriage, when it comes to being believers. Just inspirations. I feel like I lost a family member for sure, and I'm sure everyone else feels the same way."
A truly sad day. No one wants to hear about anyone passing away in that fashion.
