Two University of Kentucky basketball players were involved in a Sunday afternoon car accident, according to LEX18.
Kentucky freshmen De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo were involved in a car accident on Nicholasville Road at about 12:45 p.m. Sunday that sent one person to the hospital, said Lexington police public information officer Brenna Angel.
The players were passengers in a car that rear ended another while they were on their way back to UK’s campus for a meeting, Angel said. An occupant of the vehicle that was hit sustained minor injuries. Drugs and alcohol were not involved in the accident, Angel said.
Both players left the scene of the accident in another car, which was fine since neither was driving, Angel said.
Angel confirmed that police went to the Joe Craft Center to meet with Fox and Adebayo, and that neither player suffered any injuries in the crash.
