Dallas Cowboys rookie defensive end Sam Williams was involved in a car accident in Texas on Thursday … TMZ Sports has confirmed.
The 23-year-old was reportedly traveling in his Corvette in Plano — a quick drive from the team facility in Frisco — just hours ago, when he was hit by another vehicle that attempted a turn in front of oncoming traffic.
Williams and the other driver were not seriously injured, according to CBS-DFW, but both parties were taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation.
Cops are investigating whether speed played a role in the accident.
