Houston Texans second-year safety Justin Reid announced on twitter that he was involved in an automobile accident when a drunk driver hit him from behind.
Reid discussed the incident from the night before.
"As some of you know, I was involved in an accident last night from being hit from behind by a drunk driver," Reid said via his twitter account. "Thankfully aside from a few bruises, nobody involved was seriously injured.
Reid continued on twitter, "Makes me think about the Cam Newton crash from a couple of years ago. Scary stuff. Make good decisions out there on the road!"
With the Texans reporting to training camp this week, having their rising star safety in Reid on the field is essential, having him healthy and alive after the accident is the bigger priority for the Texans.
Reid started 12 of the 16 games he appeared in and posted 88 total tackles with ten pass deflections and three interceptions that included a 101-yard interception return against the Washington Redskins that sealed a victory in that contest. It is that strong rookie season that has Reid looking to build for an even bigger season in year two as a starter in a remade secondary.
