MIT officer killed was brother of Hendrick Motorsports mechanic
Fri, 19 Apr 2013 19:15:22 GMT — KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Hendrick Motorsports was shaken by the news Friday that the MIT officer killed during the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was the brother of Andrew Collier, a mechanic in its engine shop. Sean Collier was found shot to death late Thursday in his vehicle in Cambridge, Mass. Authorities have said Collier was responding to a report of a disturbance when he was shot. Andrew Collier has been working for Hendrick Motorsports since September 2008. Five-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson said, "My thoughts and prayers with the Collier family, and I certainly know it's the same thing with everyone at Hendrick Motorsports. We're one big family and it's sad to see a teammate going through this."
