Welterweight boxing champ Errol Spence Jr. is lucky to be alive after his Ferrari flipped over multiple times in the early hours of Thursday morning in Dallas in an apparent single-car accident. Spence was rushed to a hospital ICU with what were originally reported to be serious but not life-threatening injuries. And based on the first-known footage to emerge from the event, it's anyone's guess how Spence could have possibly survived.
This doesn't even seem real. It's more like something from a movie. Spence's Ferrari flips over multiple times, and he was reportedly ejected from the vehicle in the process.
But somehow, according to Premier Boxing Champions spokesperson Tim Smith, Spence isn't just going top survive -- his injuries are "not that serious."
And he's apparently awake and responsive.
Spence remains at Dallas' Methodist Hospital, and while his road back to health will surely have its challenges, it's increasingly expected at this time that the WBC and IBF welterweight titlist will eventually be able to return to the ring. After taking just one look at that video, the very idea is simply astounding.
