|Brady Was Scared After 2-Car Accident
|FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says he was scared out of his mind after he was involved in a two-vehicle crash last week.
He said Monday during his weekly appearance on WEEI radio he was shocked when a minivan collided with the car he was driving in Boston.
Brady was unhurt in Thursday's accident and practiced with his teammates later that day. But a passenger in the minivan had to undergo emergency surgery and was hospitalized in serious condition.
A lawyer for the injured man's family says his condition has worsened. Attorney Samuel Reef tells The Boston Globe newspaper the family of 49-year-old Fall River resident Rogerio Rodrigues is concerned for his well-being as it awaits more medical tests.
Police say Rodrigues' adult son ran a red light. The son maintains he had the green light.
