Aaron Hernandez’s uncle was reportedly killed in a moped crash in Connecticut.

CBS Boston reported that Robert Valentine, 49, crashed his moped in Bristol, Conn.

Police responders said that they found him suffering from a life-threatening head wound. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Police determined that he struck a curb and was thrown onto a driveway, hitting another curb.

He was not wearing a helmet, officials said.

Valentine is the brother of Terri Hernandez, the mother of Aaron Hernandez, according to the Sun Chronicle.

Hernandez, a former tight end with the New England Patriots, was recently charged with murder in the shooting death of associate Odin Lloyd.
