Boston.com is reporting that New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was involved in a car accident this morning in downtown Boston. Claiming that the accident was "more than a minor fender-bender," little else is known at this point, nor has Brady's health been reported yet. Update: ESPNBoston is now reporting that Brady did not require hospital treatment and went to Gillette stadium.
Quoting sources that relayed the information to the Dennis & Callahan Show, the Web site reported that Brady was "shaken" but refused transport to the hospital. The report further stated that a pole was down at the scene and that the jaws of life were used by rescuers.
Later reports stated that Brady's car, an Audi, was involved in a collision with a late-model red Ford minivan. The driver of the minivan was taken to Brigham & Women's Hospital, according to WEEI, but Brady did not go to the hospital and was reportedly on his way to Gillette Stadium.
A source told ESPNBoston.com that Brady is now en route to Gillette Stadium. He did not require hospital treatment.
Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald told The Boston Globe that a sedan and a passenger van collided at 6:34 a.m. MacDonald told the newspaper that a traffic light was also struck.
Sources told The Globe that Brady was driving the sedan and was treated at the scene. Sources told the newspaper that Brady got out of his car but that the "Jaws of Life" had to be used to free a passenger in the van.
