Texas A&M Basketball Recruit Tobi Oyedeji Dies in Car Accident | San Diego Auto Wreck Lawyer

Publish Date: 2010/05/20

On May 16‚ 2010‚ high school basketball star Tobi Oyedeji was involved in a head-on car accident on South Main near Hillcroft in Houston when his car hit another vehicle. Tobi was driving a Toyota Avalon that hit two vehicles head on‚ one of which was a Jeep SUV.   A female driver who was driving the second vehicle was declared dead while the driver of the third vehicle was unhurt.

After taking Tobi to the hospital‚ a surgery was performed within a few hours of the accident.  Unfortunately‚ Tobi was not able to recover from his injuries and passed away.

We give out heartfelt condolences to Tobi’s family and friends who have lost a brilliant kid.  He died 5 days before his birthday and days before he was to enroll in Texas A&M University as a highly touted basketball recruit.  We hope that all his fellow students will take inspiration from the success that he delivered in both studies and sports.
