Errol Spence Jr has been involved in another dangerous car wreck, just three years on from the one that left his career in jeopardy.
Whilst the 32-year-old welterweight champion was at fault back in 2019, and was ultimately charged with Driving While Intoxicated, this time around it seems it was another reckless driver who caused the crash.
The fighter from Dallas, Texas took to Instagram to show off the substantial damage and provide some details on what happened.
“He ran the light. F*** my whole s*** up. The mother f***** hit me … f***ed my leg up. It’s crazy. He ran the light. Always happen to me. I’ve seen him coming too. He ran right into me.”
“I seen him coming, going fast as hell. He hit me head-on. My car is all metal, heavy as hell. I’m just glad I didn’t have my kids in there with me. I ain’t worried about no damn car, shoot.”

Spence is also heard being told that the driver who totalled his car was 14 and without a license. This has yet to be confirmed.
Whilst his injuries certainly don’t compare to a six day stint in the intensive care unit, ‘The Truth’ will likely be checked and provide an update in due course as to how this might hinder a ring return, if at all.
The WBA, WBC, and IBF champ got into the accident not long before his rival and the division’s other belt holder, Terence Crawford, sensationally knocked out David Avanesyan in Omaha, Nebraska.
Spence and Crawford have recently saw negotiations for their own fight fall through, leaving fans wondering what it will take to make it happen and settle a long-running debate of the best man at welterweight.
Post-fight, Crawford was informed of the crash and send his best wishes.
“I wish him well. I hope he’s alright – mentally, physically and emotionally. This is just a sport. We’re all fighting for that number one spot, so it ain’t personal. It’s just business.”
