Tragedy struck after the New York Jets’ stunning upset win over the New England Patriots on Sunday. In a story that could only be designed for TV drama, Raymond Larsen, a 46-year-old New York Jets fan, died in a sledding accident on Sunday night after the Jets knocked the New England Patriots out of the playoffs. According to John Annese of the Staten Island Advocate, Larsen “took a celebratory sled ride down his driveway in Great Kills” and crashed into “a car driving down his block” at about 8:52 p.m.
Larsen was unconscious and unresponsive when police arrived on the scene. Police said that the 61-year-old female driver did not have any alcohol in her system and that they do not suspect any crime on her part. May his soul rest in “green”.
