Browns DE Myles Garrett taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries after being involved in 1-car accident Monday

CLEVELAND, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – Browns All-Pro defensive end Myles Garrett was involved in a one-car accident in Medina County Monday afternoon.

Garrett and a female passenger were transported to a local hospital to be treated for “non-life-threatening injuries” a spokesman for the Ohio Highway Patrol confirmed to 92.3 The Fan.

The Browns are in the process of gathering more information a team spokesman said.

Garrett was driving at the time of the accident that occurred on State Road in Medina County Monday afternoon that saw his grey Porsche turn over before coming to a rest.

The Highway Patrol said Garrett's Porsche went "off the right side of the roadway and overturned."

Although the accident, which occurred just before 3 p.m. is under investigation, "impairment from alcohol and/or drugs is not suspected," a spokesman for the State Highway Patrol told 92.3 the Fan.

Both Garrett and his passenger were wearing their safety belts at the time of the accident.

Garrett's agent issued a statement thanking "medical personnel that got Myles and his passenger out of the vehicle and safely transported to the hospital." Garrett has been "alert and responsive" according to his agent.

A source told 92.3 The Fan that Garrett was able to walk to the ambulance on his own and did not suffer any major injuries.

ESPN's Jake Trotter reported Monday night that Garrett did not suffer any broken bones in the accident and Garrett is expected to be discharged from the hospital Monday night.

Garrett, one of the top pass rushers in the NFL who is a sack shy of breaking Clay Matthews Jr.'s official franchise record for sacks, practiced Monday following a three day weekend.

The 2-1 Browns travel to Atlanta Sunday to take on the Falcons but Garrett's status is unknown.
