MEDINA COUNTY, Ohio – Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was involved in a single-car accident Monday afternoon after practice in Berea, Ohio State Highway Patrol officials said.
Garrett attended Berea’s practice on Monday morning. After leaving the facility and pretending to be heading home, Garrett crashed his 2021 Porsche southbound on State Road near Sharon Copley Road near Wadsworth. There was a female passenger in the car, according to OSHP.
The car went off the right side of the road and overturned several times before the vehicle came to rest, OSHP officials told News 5.
The accident took place around 3 pm and the cause is yet to be ascertained. OSHP officials confirmed that the Medina Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to the scene.
Both Garrett and a female passenger were taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said. Both were wearing belts. OSHP troopers said Garrett’s injuries were minor.
According to OSHP, neither alcohol nor drugs were factors in the crash. Traffic charges are pending.
The Browns released this statement Monday evening:
“Myles Garrett left the practice facility this afternoon and was involved in a one-car accident. He suffered non-life threatening injuries, was taken to a local hospital and we are in the process of gathering more information.
No word yet on whether this will affect Garrett’s status on the field. The Browns next game is Sunday, Oct. 2 at Atlanta.
Garrett is especially beloved by Cleveland sports fans, for his prowess on the field and his many interactions with the community, like this winter when he donated to local kids on weekends.
