Jason Pierre-Paul was involved in a single-car accident on Thursday morning in Broward County, according to TMZ. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive player was driving his SUV when he lost control and crashed. Emergency services were able to rush to the scene of the accident and brought Pierre-Paul to the hospital along with another passenger, whose status is currently unknown. The 30-year-old was eventually released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
The report states that Pierre-Paul was not speeding at the time of the accident and that he has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
Bucs general manager Jason Licht spoke to TMZ about the accident, saying the team's priority is Pierre-Paul's safety and that they will be sure to monitor the situation as closely as possible.

"Our immediate concern is for the safety and well being of Jason and his passenger," Licht said. "We have been in contact with Jason and will be getting him further evaluated by our medical staff in the near future."
Pierre-Paul got into an infamous accident back in 2015 after some fireworks exploded prematurely in his hand. Since the incident, Pierre-Paul has had to play with a cast on his hand as his fingers are mangled.
