Jets’ Braylon Edwards In Minor Car Crash Near Detroit; Receiver Tweets ‘I’m Good’
NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Police say Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was involved in a minor car crash on the Detroit River island park of Belle Isle early Friday morning.
Officer Phillip Cook said Edwards was driving a two-seat sports car with an unidentified passenger around 3:40 a.m. when he lost control, drove off the road and into a pylon. Neither he nor his passenger were injured.
“He’s fine,” Edwards’ father, Stan, said this afternoon, according to the Detroit Free Press. “It amounted to a fender-bender. No one was injured.”
Cook said there were no tickets issued and alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor.
Edwards later tweeted: “Got into a fender bender last night, turns out Audi’s & rain don’t mix to well. I’m good.”
The receiver faces trial in a New York DWI case stemming from a Sept. 21 police stop. He has denied the charges.
