Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was involved in a horrific two-vehicle accident earlier today, Dec. 9. He was rushed to a hospital after his truck flipped over, multiple times, in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to multiple report. We sure hope he’s okay!
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, 25, was raced to a hospital, following a two-vehicle accident, during which his truck was “t-boned” before it flipped over near the team’s Bank of America Stadium on Tuesday, Dec. 9, a new report claims. Cam barely crawled out of his smashed-up truck, and looked to be in extreme pain when medical professionals arrived on the scene, according to TMZ.

Cam was quickly taken to the hospital by an ambulance after his truck flipped over — multiple times — on a bridge in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to USA TODAY.
Cam allegedly tried to stand, after exiting his truck, but couldn’t find the strength, TMZ claims. He then “waited for help to arrive.”
The NFL player was allegedly the only person in his vehicle at the time of the horrific crash at 12:30 P.M. ET, the Charlotte Observer‘s Jonathan Jones confirmed on Twitter. He also posted photos of Cam being put on a stretcher.

The Panthers initially released a statement on Twitter, claiming Cam will be held overnight for observation at Carolinas Medical Center, ESPN claims.
The team later added: “Further testing revealed that Cam Newton has two transverse process fractures in his lower back and no further internal injuries,” according to their Twitter account.
Cam Newton Is A Football Star
Cam won the 2010 Heisman Trophy at Auburn and he was drafted by the Panthers in 2011. Since then, he’s become a huge star in the world of football. One year ago, we also named Cam as one of NFL’s sexiest quarterbacks! We just hope his minor injuries don’t keep him off the field for very long.
Our thoughts go out to Cam at this time. He has many people, including us, rooting for a speedy recovery.
