Rasual Butler, a longtime NBA player, died Wednesday along with his wife, R&B singer and former "American Idol" contestant Leah LaBelle Vladowski, in what police said was a single-vehicle rollover crash in Los Angeles.

Police said the couple died at the scene and that autopsies were pending.

Butler was 38. The NBA released a statement saying it was "devastated" by Butler's death.

"A pro's pro, Rasual enjoyed a long, successful career and was widely respected by his peers and coaches," the NBA said.

Saw the wreckage and the SUV was toasted. They say it was a rollover, but looks like they hit a concrete wall/abutment in a bad way. SUV apparently lost control at a good rate of speed and hit the wall that was separating a parking lot and a strip of businesses from the street. Looks like they came just short of having an empty parking lot in front of them.
