Following Monday’s practice, Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett had a scary brush with death when he was involved in a pretty terrifying car accident that left him hospitalized after his car flipped multiple times.
According to a report from Camryn Justice of News 5 Cleveland, Garrett was leaving the Browns’ practice facility when he crashed his 2021 Porsche. The vehicle veered off the right side of the road and flipped several times before coming to a rest.
Pictures of the scene have since been uncovered.
Both Garrett and his passenger were transported to a nearby hospital and had non-life-threatening injuries. Both were wearing seatbelts and neither alcohol nor drugs are considered a factor in the accident.
“Myles Garrett was involved in a one-car accident this afternoon after leaving the practice facility. He suffered non-life threatening injuries, was transported to a local hospital and we are in the process of gathering more information,” the Cleveland Browns said in a statement.
Garrett is one of the franchise cornerstones for the Browns, who selected him with the No. 1 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.
The Texas A&M product has seven tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble, and one pass defended through three games this season.
