Jets Muhammad Wilkerson Flips Car In Accident..Walks Away Unscathed
Lucky guy seems like it could have been a lot worse.
Just used one of his 9 lives.
New York Jets defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson, the team’s first-round draft pick in 2011, was treated for “minor injuries” after he was involved in an accident on the Garden State Parkway early Saturday morning in which the car he was driving overturned after striking another vehicle, a police spokesman confirmed.
Wilkerson was transported to a Newark hospital after he crawled out of his car, according to New Jersey Garden State Trooper Christopher Kay, who added that there did not appear to be any other serious injuries suffered by anyone in the car that Wilkerson struck.
Kay said Wilkerson was charged with careless driving and failure to maintain his lane after he struck a Toyota Siena with his 2011 Dodge Challenger, according to the police report. Police responded after being notified of the accident at 4:29 a.m. on Saturday.
Trooper Kay said the police report did not indicate that Wilkerson was driving under the influence. He escaped a potentially tragic result by crawling out from his overturned car, sources said.
Good that he wasn’t drunk or anything, because there have been way too many of those stories lately.
Be careful out on the roads.
