Florida State University quarterback Christian Ponder and punter Graham Gano were returning from a speaking engagement at a Tallahassee middle school Wednesday, when another driver swerved into their lane at a busy intersection. Ponder’s SUV was nearly totaled, but he and Gano were not injured. Both players practiced at full speed Thursday.
Car accidents happen every day. If you are ever involved in one, hopefully it won’t be a serious one like the one that Ponder and Gano were involved in. They were fortunate, in that they are in excellent physical shape and were not seriously injured in this accident. The average person is not in the physical condition that football players are and serious injuries can occur, even in minor accidents.
If you or a loved one have been involved in a car accident, you should seek immediate medical attention to make sure that you haven’t been injured in the accident. Some injuries are obvious, but other soft tissue injuries are often undetectable at the time of the accident, showing up as stiffness, numbness, soreness, severe or chronic headaches, and even mild brain injury days or weeks after the event. Because there is such a wide range of medical issues possible with an auto accident, it’s important to seek the best medical treatment related to your particular injury or condition.
