Chamblin was driving around 95 mph when his car slammed into a vehicle driven by Lisa White, the mother of the Patriots player, investigators said. Tyrone White, the player’s father, was in the passenger seat and was killed in the crash. He was a longtime Miami-Dade County Police Department captain.

Lisa White was recovering after suffering from serious injuries.

James White told reporters Wednesday that his mother was “doing better,” according to Boston.com.

“Everybody in Florida’s doing better,” White said. “My mom’s doing better, as well. She’s progressing physically. Obviously, a lot going on in her mind and things of that nature, but she’s continued to progress. I’m just trying to be there for her.”

White said it’s still a “tough situation.”

“She’s just trying to wrap her mind around everything,” he said. “Kind of a lot going on, but I’m just trying to be there for her and my family, as well.”
