A Georgia football player was struck by a car on Tuesday morning, according to a report.
David Daniel, a freshman safety for the Bulldogs, got off a university bus on Tuesday before he was hit by a vehicle on the street. Fortunately, the four-star defensive back in the 2021 cycle didn’t suffer any serious injuries, according to a report from OnlineAthens.com. The report says Daniel walked away with a few scrapes and cuts and a wound on his thigh.
“A freshman UGA football player was struck by a vehicle on campus Tuesday morning after exiting a university campus transit bus, but did not need to be hospitalized,” wrote Marc Wiszer of OnlineAthens.com.
“Safety David Daniel told UGA police that he sustained cuts to his left wrist and left thigh area and police noticed an open wound on his thigh, according to a police motor vehicle crash report.”
The incident occurred as Daniel walked in front of the bus to cross the street. He reportedly looked to his right, then to his left when he was struck by a vehicle. It’s extremely fortunate he’s okay.
