I was going to call it a 'major' car accident (as the police and news have been) but it didn't seem like the best word choice. Hope he's okay.

Per his agent:


Looks like he'll survive, but multiple leg injuries sounds bad. I'd hate to see his career derailed. Guessing he got run off the road or fell asleep.

Looks like based on the location of the sign he hit, he almost hit that utility pole, which probably would have been much worse.

Man he's lucky. From those photos looks like a severe wreck. Shows no matter who you are, where you live and how much you may have, life is fragile and can hit hard unexpectedly.

It looks like he crossed the median, hit a sign and went through the oncoming traffic lanes and off the road. The median is raised, so his car probably got several feet into the air when he hit it. Probably fortunate he didn't hit oncoming traffic. Yikes.

Idk the speed limit there, but he had to be going pretty quick for car to travel that far after crashing.

certainly not going to help his back any
I gotta wonder if his back injury had anything to do with the crash? Meds affect driving? Or maybe back went out while driving? Too many questions.

Also, looked like he was packed. Don't know if he was coming or going tho.

He had surgery not that long ago. He gave an interview just yesterday talking about it.

Yeah, I meant to say surgey, wasn't thinking when I said injury. I was thinking with the surgery being recent, wonder if he was taking pain meds or if maybe his back went out while he was driving.
