From News 5 Cleveland:
Garrett attended practice in Berea on Monday morning. After he left the facility, seemingly on his way home, Garrett crashed his 2021 Porsche near Wadsworth while driving south on State Road near Sharon Copley Road. There was a female passenger in the car, according to OSHP.
The car went off the right side of the road and the vehicle flipped several times before coming to a rest, OSHP officials told News 5.
Both Garrett and the female passenger were taken to a nearby hospital and have non-life-threatening injuries, officials said. Both were wearing seatbelts. OSHP troopers said Garrett’s injuries were minor.
Neither alcohol nor drugs were factors in the crash, according to OSHP. Traffic charges are pending.
The Browns released this statement Monday evening:
“Myles Garrett was involved in a one-car accident this afternoon after leaving the practice facility. He suffered non-life threatening injuries, was transported to a local hospital and we are in the process of gathering more information.”
