Tampa Bay Bucs defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was involved in a single car crash Thursday morning in Broward County, Florida, as TMZ first reported. The accident occurred at 5 AM, where he was then taken to a hospital.
Pierre-Paul has since been released from the hospital and looks to be doing okay. Reports say that it was merely an accident, with only Pierre-Paul’s SUV involved. He was not speeding or accused of any wrongdoing.
Bucs’ general manager Jason Licht gave a statement on the matter.
“We have been informed that Jason was involved in a one-car accident early this morning in South Florida in which he was not cited. We know that he was evaluated at a local hospital and has since been released. Our immediate concern is for the safety and well-being of Jason and his passenger. We have been in contact with Jason and will be getting him further evaluated by our medical staff in the near future.”
