According to a report from the Tampa Police Department, Bucs running back, Doug Martin, was involved in a car accident on Thursday afternoon.
According to the report, the accident was considered “minor” and took place about 3 miles south of One Buc Place at Azeele and Habana in Tampa. Per the police report, the accident was not Martin’s fault and was a result of someone else running a stop sign to hit his car. The report says Martin received, “minor cuts and bruises” from the crash.
Buccaneers general manager, Jason Licht, released a statement about the accident later that day.
“Doug was the unfortunate victim in an auto accident earlier today after leaving our team facility. While Doug’s vehicle sustained a large amount of damage, we are pleased to report that he received only minor cuts and bruises. He has been evaluated by our medical staff and has headed home.”
More information, including a statement from Martin or anyone else with the Buccaneers will be posted when known.
