Former Timberwolves forward Eddie Griffin was killed early Friday morning when the vehicle he was driving crashed into the side of a moving train in Houston, the Harris County Medical Examiner's office said today.

Griffin, 25, was driving a Nissan sports-utility vehicle and traveling west when he disregarded a railroad-warning signal, according to the Houston police incident report. Griffin drove through the railroad arm and then struck the side of a Union Pacific train as it traveled south on the tracks at about 1:30 a.m. Friday. The vehicle caught fire as the train stopped.

Griffin, who was driving alone but was not named on the original incident report because authorities needed time to identify the body, died at the scene.

Griffin was waived by the Timberwolves on March 13 following a series of incidents, the last of which was a five-game suspension by the NBA for violating the league's anti-drug program. Griffin had been battling drug and alcohol issues during his career.

LJS: I don't entirely disagree with you, in fact, you are proving my point. Sure, Carter signed an extension. He was treated like a God, they gave him all the money they could, and the team was winning. Anyone would take that deal.
