Tom Brady's Car Accident is Big News

Celebrities get in car accidents just like everyone else. This morning, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was in a car accident in downtown Boston today that seriously damaged his Audi S8 sedan and the other vehicle, a Mercury Villager minivan. The news hit ESPN’s Sportscenter early this morning, and it most likely has the nation’s fantasy football players worried.

Brady walked away seemingly unharmed, but one rear passenger in the minivan had to be rescued with the Jaws of Life and was taken to an area hospital. Witnesses said the crash was violent enough that the sound of it woke them from a deep sleep at 6:15 a.m.

Looking at early photos at the link below, it appears Brady’s Audi struck the side of the Mercury. However, there have been no details on which driver may be at fault. We also can’t tell if the airbags deployed.

The Audi S8 is a 450-horsepower sports sedan with a V-10 engine. It was last offered in 2009 at a starting price of $96,200. Brady has a sponsorship deal with Audi, and this S8 is likely a loaner car from the manufacturer since it sports New Jersey tags.
