Before the car flipped over, it reportedly veered left over the center median, according to the authorities, into the southbound lanes, then flipped over.

“Mr. Spence has been released from the hospital and will need to address those charges,” the Dallas police spokesman said. “As for getting a speed of the vehicle, we will not be getting one. It was a single-car accident with no other criminal charges. Therefore, no reason to get a warrant to pull the [black box] of the vehicle.”

It was a miracle that Spence Jr. did not suffer any serious injuries. He did; however, suffer facial lacerations and broken teeth, according to ESPN.

The 29-year-old DeSoto, Texas native could be out for an extended period, as he recovers emotionally and psychically from the accident.
