A former college basketball star turned television analyst was reportedly hospitalized following a scary car accident.
Former Florida Gators star Patric Young was involved in a one-vehicle rollover accident in Nebraska.
The current ESPN college basketball analyst is said to be recovering in a South Dakota hospital.
Yankton.net had more details on the accident:
“The investigation revealed Patrick Young, 30, of O’Neill, was operating a motor vehicle northbound on 511 Avenue, approaching the intersection with 881 Road. Young was unfamiliar with the roadway and, upon approaching the intersection, started to apply his brakes. Young didn’t believe he would be able to stop in time and turned to his left, causing the pickup to lose traction and slide sideways across 881 Road. After crossing the roadway, the pickup rolled over once and settled on its wheels. Young and another individual subsequently contacted Knox County authorities.
Young did not have a seat belt on during the rollover accident and was subsequently transported to Avera McKennan in Sioux Falls. There was no indication of injuries to the passenger.”
After going undrafted in the 2014 NBA draft, Young joined the New Orleans Pelicans for the 2014 NBA Summer League. He would be signed by the Pelicans in July 2014, but would be released by the team in November of that same year before appearing in a game for them.
The very next month, Young signed with Galatasaray Liv Hospital of Turkey, playing in 24 games and averaging 10.5 points and 7.9 rebounds per game.
