Cleveland Browns receiver Donte Stallworth says he is "grief stricken" over his car accident that killed a pedestrian on a busy causeway linking Miami and Miami Beach last weekend

Stallworth, 28, said in a statement released by the team Wednesday that his "thoughts and prayers are with" the family of Mario Reyes.

Police say Stallworth was headed toward the beach when he hit the 59-year-old Reyes with his Bentley on Saturday morning. Reyes was near a crosswalk but it's unclear if he was crossing legally. Stallworth has not been charged with a crime, but police are awaiting a routine toxicology report before releasing more details.

Stallworth said he could not comment further because the accident is under investigation. He was cooperating with police.
