The sister of Duke's freshman guard Andre Dawkins was killed Saturday in a car accident in West Virginia.

WRAL reports that Lacey Dawkins, 21, died in an accident involving multiple vehicles on Interstate 77 near Pax, W.Va. The Dawkins' mother, Tamara Hill*, was also in the car, but there's no word on her condition. Four other people were injured in the wreck, WVNS-TV reports.

The West Virginia State Police was unable to release more information, but the person who answered our telephone call expressed familiarity with the area of the accident and said that weather conditions Saturday were poor.

The Duke basketball team is in the middle of a break in its schedule before play resumes in Durham next Tuesday, Dec. 15, against Gardner-Webb.

* Initial reports gave the elder Dawkins' name as Pamela. A statement by Duke University spokeman Matt Plizga indicated that the Dawkinses were traveling to Durham for Saturday's game between Duke and St. John's. No update was available on the condition of Tamara Dawkins.
