Welterweight Boxing Champ Errol Spence Jr. Seriously Injured In Brutal Car Crash (PICS)
Unified welterweight world titlist Errol Spence Jr. was involved in one-car crash on Thursday and is now currently in a Dallas area hospital suffering from serious injuries. Spence was said to be intensive care, but is expected to live following the horrific car crash of his Ferrari.
“Errol was in an accident, and his parents are with him at the hospital,” Premier Boxing Champions spokesman Tim Smith told ESPN. “The doctors are monitoring his condition, but his injuries are not life-threatening. We will have further updates as the doctors update his condition. We’re all wishing the best for Errol.”
Dallas police told media outlets that the accident occurred at 2:53 a.m. CT, when the car was traveling at “a high rate of speed.”
“The Ferrari veered left over the center median onto the southbound lanes and flipped multiple times, ejecting the driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt,” police said.”
Here are some of the frightening photos from the scene that show just how lucky he is to be alive.
Spence, who is 26-0 with 21 KOs, last fought on September 28th when he scored a split decision against Shawn Porter to unify two 147-pound world titles at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
