Patriots QB Tom Brady was in a two car crash at 6:34 this morning, according to reports.
Responders used the "Jaws Of Life" to rescue the driver of the other car, a Ford minivan.
Brady suffered whiplash and was shaken up, but reports indicate he was otherwise unharmed.
His initial reaction was concern.
"Obviously it's a shock, no matter who it is,". "You never want to hear information like that. We're all thankful everyone is all right and he's here."
The police report, which did not name Brady, said the driver of the Audi had no visible injuries and was evaluated by Emergency Medical Services. It said a 49-year-old passenger in the minivan had to be freed with the Jaws of Life and was taken to a hospital.
"I understand he's fine, but I haven't talked to him," Brady's father, Tom Brady Sr., said outside his son's home in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood.
One of Brady's neighbors, a 74-year-old woman who asked that her name not be used for fear of being hounded by media inquiries, was walking her dogs when she saw the accident.
She said Brady was traveling south on Gloucester Street and approaching the intersection on a green light when his car collided with a fast-moving minivan that was westbound on Commonwealth Avenue.
"The red car went up in the air, sideways. … The tire was half off," the woman said.
Afterward, she said Brady immediately got out of his car.
The woman had been near the intersection when the crash occurred and fell down and hit her head while bracing for impact.
She said the two sat next to each other in an ambulance, but neither was taken to the hospital. She did not realize he was the star quarterback until later.
"I want to thank the safety personnel for their service, and express our concern and support for the well-being of the occupants of the other vehicle," Brady's agent, David Yee, said in a statement. "I don't have any other information to share at this time."
Another witness, Bill Barron, said he was in his apartment overlooking the intersection when he heard a collision that sounded like "a bolt of lightning."
When he looked out the window, he saw the driver of the car picking glass off his clothes and wiping himself off with a towel. He didn't realize until later that it was Brady.
