” Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was taken to a hospital after the truck he was traveling in crashed in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Tuesday, police said.
He was transferred to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department spokesman Rob Tufano. Newton’s truck and a sedan were involved in the wreck.
” It would appear the car rolled over. The accident is being investigated,” he said.
There was no word on what caused the wreck in uptown Charlotte, but witnesses told CNN affiliate WSOC they saw Newton’s vehicle flip four times.
WSOC published an image of a dark-colored truck lying on its side in the roadway.
The extent of Newton’s injuries was not immediately clear. The Charlotte Observer tweeted an image of Newton lying on his side smiling.”
