Nic Kerdiles, an NHL player who was formerly engaged to reality personality Savannah Chrisley, passed away at the age of 29.
The Nashville Police Department reported that the former Anaheim Ducks player passed away early on Saturday morning in Tennessee after being involved in a motorbike accident.
He was riding his Indian motorcycle when the accident occurred, according to officials, just after 3:30 a.m.
According to ET Online, Kerdiles allegedly ran a stop sign and struck a driver’s BMW on the side.
The celebrity was brought to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was later declared dead.
Kerdiles uploaded an unsettling Instagram story to his account showing him riding his motorcycle at night with the comment “Night rider” only a few hours before he passed himself.
While dating Savannah Chrisley, the second daughter of Todd and Julie Chrisley, Kerdiles became well-known on the reality television program “Chrisley Knows Best” in the USA.
They began dating in 2017, and in December of 2019 they got engaged. In a touching Instagram post in September 2020, they decided to call off the engagement.
“Nic and I have decided to call it quits. There’s no hatred between the two of us…and in all honesty…that makes saying goodbye even harder. We have nothing but love, respect, and admiration for one another, but it’s time for us to move forward individually,” Chrisley revealed in the 2020 post.
Kerdiles, born and grew in Lewisville, Texas, is survived by his parents, Michel Kerdiles and Nathalie De Larminat-Kerdiles, and two sisters.
