Wide receiver Isaac Bruce of the St. Louis Rams escaped uninjured from a crash at 70 miles per hour. He was driving his Mercedes along the freeway at 70 mph when a back yire blew out. He put on the brake, but the car went into a spin and then rolled over twice before landing right side up. Although his car suffered $24,000 in damages, Bruce walked away without a scratch (even though he wasn't wearing his seatbelt) and his girlfriend Glegzette Sharp suffered only a small cut on her forehead. He said his escape from injury was due to Jesus, whose name he yelled out when the tire blew out.
