Supermodel Gisele Bundchen's husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, escaped injury after a two-car smashup near his home in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood.
Brady's dad, Tom Brady Sr., had just flown in from California this morning when he heard the news of the accident. He tells Boston's FOX 25, "I understand he's fine, but I haven't talked to him. Not the way you like to get off a plane."
The passenger in the minivan, who was involved in the wreck with Brady's Audi, had to be freed with the jaws of life, but the injuries are "not life threatening," according to the Boston Fire Department.
A witness who saw the accident happen didn't recognize it was Brady at first. He tells the local Boston FOX news affiliate, "I thought it was some college kid who had crashed up his father's really nice car."
According to The Patriots rep, Brady is expected at practice this afternoon.
