Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was involved in a car accident on Tuesday afternoon. NBC Charlotte has reported that Newton was taken away from the scene in an ambulance.
Newton’s truck and another car were involved in the crash near Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte at about 12:50 p.m. ET. WBTV reports that Newton was not injured, but taken to the hospital as a precaution.
While Newton looks to have escaped without incurring any serious injuries, the crash itself appeared to be serious. His truck, reportedly, flipped multiple times, and he was loaded into an ambulance on a stretcher.
"We are closely monitoring the situation of a car wreck involving Cam Newton," the Panthers wrote in a statement. "We will have more information at an appropriate time."
