Denver Broncos running back De’Angelo Henderson was in of one of several cars struck by the driver of a stolen car in a high-speed police pursuit Saturday night.
Henderson was taken to a hospital in Englewood, Colo. where he was treated for scrapes and bruises and released, ESPN reported. A shook-up Henderson posted a picture of the accident to his Instagram account showing his badly mangled Jeep on the roadway turned upside down on its roof .
“With OTAs a week a way and a season that I’m competing for a significant roll, the most traumatic event I’ve probably ever had to deal with occurs,” Henderson wrote. “T-boned, airborne, flipped, and rolled. I plowed through my jammed door and exit my Jeep on my own. I’m truly blessed that God protected me through this accident. Without his favor I don’t know if I would’ve survived…”
Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth said Henderson was back at the team’s complex Monday for offseason workouts. Police, meanwhile, said the driver of the stolen vehicle was arrested on potential charges for vehicular assault, eluding the police and auto theft, as well as driving under the influence and several traffic violations.
Selected in the 6th round of the 2017 NFL Draft out of Coastal Carolina, Henderson saw limited action in his rookie season, carrying just seven times for 13 yards.
