Celebrated U.S. track star Torrin Lawrence has been killed in a tragic road accident in Georgia.
The 25-year-old athlete was driving in the early hours of Monday (28Jul14) when one of his vehicle's tires exploded, causing his car to grind to a halt.
He climbed out of the vehicle to call emergency services, but was fatally struck after a tractor trailer crashed into his wreck, sending it hurtling towards the sprinter.
Lawrence was a star sportsman at the University of Georgia and a key member of Team Usa at the IAAF World Relays in the Bahamas in May (14), winning gold in the 4x400 relay.
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
