Report: Cam Newton injured in car accident

camnewtonAPThe Panthers have a new thing to worry about, as if they didn’t have enough already.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was involved in a car wreck near downtown today.

Details are few at the moment, but the crash included Newton’s car flipped over on a bridge and another involved, near the intersection of Church Street and I-277, close to Bank of America Stadium.

Dianne Gallagher of WCNC has a photograph of Newton being loaded into an ambulance, and Chris Littman of the Sporting News has a photo of Newton’s truck after it was flipped over, the top flattened.

We’ll have more on this as it develops.

Well that sucks. No word on exactly how badly Newton has been injured but Sportscenter just confirmed to me that he is in the hospital and is being treated by doctors. Bad time to be a Newton owner going into the second week of fantasy playoffs. The Panthers even technically have a shot to make the playoffs considering how bad the NFC South is, so bad time to be a Panthers fan, even though I guess its always a bad time to be a Panthers fan. All jokes aside, we wish the best to Superman Cam, you never want to see an injury, especially when its something as scary as a car accident. Here’s to a speedy recovery from whatever injuries he may have sustained in the wreck.

Cam is looking like he is going to be ok. Definitely no life threatening injuries. As far as being ready to play on Sunday, no word whatsoever on that. We’ll keep you posted. Happy to see a smile on Cam’s face though.
