Everything De 'Angelo Henderson wanted to do was to grill in a suburb of Denver on Saturday night. The Broncos who ran back turned head on in his car, which was smashed and destroyed by another driver who was being pursued by the police.
That met two big positive results for Henderson, unknowingly helping to end a chase the other driver had already hit several cars and eventually taken four people to a hospital. The other was that the second grader appeared with only minor injuries, a situation in which he thanked God and declared that he was "very grateful and humble to be alive."
Henderson posted a photo on Monday of what was left of his Jeep on social media, along with a caption that described "the most traumatic event I've ever had to deal with". He said his vehicle was "T-boned, in the air, turned over and rolled" and thanked the police and rescue workers who arrived at the scene and added, "My thoughts and prayers are with the other victims and I hope they they are all safe and well. "
"I do not know if luck is the word," Henderson told Denver 9News. There are just so many different words. "
" At the last second, I saw a truck drive in on my passenger side, "said the 25-year-old, who retired from the sixth lap last year in Coastal Carolina. He found his jeep landing on another car before rolling to a reverse stop.
According to 9News, the 37-year-old Rainbow Sunset Espinoza driver attempted to overtake the police in a stolen vehicle and left at least two other cars badly damaged. Espinoza was reportedly imprisoned in Douglas County jail for a $ 50,000 bail. There are 11 charges, including stealing a vehicle, negligent driving, alcohol or drug use, fleeing from the police, turning off the headlights, driving without plates, driving while their license was revoked, red lights, criminal mischief, possession from burglary tools and second-degree attack with a deadly weapon.
"Mostly my body hurts in general," Henderson told 9News, claiming that he got out of his car by unbuckling himself and slamming his shoulder against the jammed door as he lay on the roof. "No real injuries, a lot of bruises, lots of scratches, but my body is getting better."
Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth confirmed on Twitter that Henderson suffered only minor injuries in the crash. Smyth added that Henderson was "taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure" to go to the team's practice site next week to prepare for an organized training session.
In his Instagram post, Henderson pointed out the importance of the upcoming OTAs, where his accident could have prevented him from competing for a "significant" role. The Broncos recently released CJ Anderson, the lead actor of the last season, and got Henderson to fight with another young veteran, Devontae Booker, and a pair of 2018 Draftees, third rounder Royce Freeman, and seventh rounder David Williams.
Henderson played sparse in 2017, appeared in five games and raced seven times for 13 yards, while he won two passes for 36 yards and a touchdown, as well as two kickoffs for 59 yards. He said, "My body feels like a football game."
