Police body camera footage captured the aftermath of the crash involving Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett. The video shows Garrett being treated by firefighters while another attends to Garrett’s passenger lying in the grass near the vehicle. Both suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and the couple were taken to hospital for medical treatment.
The accident happened Monday afternoon and Garrett was released from the Cleveland Clinic Akron General Monday evening. It is not known whether his passenger was also released. Garrett suffered a sprained shoulder, strained biceps and a few cuts.
The crash happened around 3 p.m. in Sharon Township, Ohio, according to the Akron Beacon Log. It’s unclear what caused the accident, but Garrett’s 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S left the road. Police are investigating the accident and drugs or alcohol are not suspected as the cause. However, it is still unknown how fast Garrett was traveling on the rural road at the time. The speed limit would be 45 miles per hour (72 kilometers per hour).
Video from WKYC Channel 3 shows the extensive damage to the car. The vehicle left the sidewalk and rolled over at least once before coming to a stop just off the road. The rear window is shattered and the windshield is cracked. The front bumper is completely gone, exposing the massive radiators in front of the wheels, which are bent and damaged.
The rear bumper is still attached to the Porsche, but many fasteners have been removed, peeling off the outer edges of the vehicle. Every panel looks damaged, including the doors. The videos also show the car’s airbags deployed due to the accident. Both occupants were wearing their seat belts.
Fortunately, there were no other cars involved and no serious injuries. The 911 Turbo S features a twin-turbocharged 3.7-liter flat-six engine capable of producing 640 horsepower (447 kilowatts) and 590 pound-feet (800 Newton-meters) of torque. Garrett has played for the Browns since 2017.
