New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was involved in a two-car crash in Boston Thursday morning, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Officials said that the equipment known as the “jaws of life” was used at the scene on one of the vehicles involved.
Eyewitnesses told Boston TV station WHDH that the football star had a green light and the mini-van allegedly ran a red light, leading to the collision.
Brady — who was described as being shaken, banged-up, and possibly having whiplash — refused to be taken to the hospital, but the driver of the other vehicle, reportedly a mini-van, was taken to the hospital.
Brady was headed to Gillette Stadium to practice, and would be examined by team doctors there.
Brady’s father, Tom Brady Sr., was told about the accident at the airport as soon as he landed in Boston from the family’s California home.
“I understand he’s fine, but I haven’t talked to him,” Brady Sr., said outside his son’s home in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood.
“Not the way you like to get off a plane,” he added.
The 33-year-old signal caller, who is married to model Gisele Bundchen, has two sons: a 1-year-old boy with his current wife, and a 3-year-old with ex Bridget Moynahan.
Brady is slated to start against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Pats’ season opener Sunday.
