Singleton is married to Hernandez’s cousin. Police say the car was registered to a man, reportedly Hernandez’s uncle, whose home has been searched several times, by Massachusetts police investigating a 2012 double homicide linked to the former NFL star.

Police seized a vehicle from that home on Friday. The home was searched again on Tuesday.

The cause of the accident has not been determined. Police said a woman in the car was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. Her name has not been released.
