According to TMZ Sports, Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson was involved in a car accident as he was reportedly drag racing with teammate RB Marshawn Lynch.
The incident reportedly occurred right outside the Seahawks practice facility as the two were reportedly seen by a witness drag racing on a straight-away public road. Jackson was driving a black Corvette and Lynch in a red Dodge Charger.

The report claims that Jackson lost control of his vehicle and rammed into a planter box while then hitting a stop sign. Several other players, including CB Richard Sherman, stopped at the accident scene and attempted to help Jackson out of the car.
Police showed up, but TMZ Sports was told that Seahawks staffers showed up as well taking Jackson back to the team facility while Lynch drove off, uninjured. It’s unclear if Jackson suffered any injuries.
