Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout suffered no serious injuries after being involved in a car accident on Wednesday night in Santa Ana, CA. California Highway Patrol is still investigating the specific cause of the accident. Although Trout came away unscathed, there were two other people injured in the crash. Orange County Fire Captain Larry Kurtz revealed the extent of those injuries.
Emergency personnel had to cut one person from a vehicle using the Jaws of Life, Kurtz said. Two people were injured. One victim went to Hoag Hospital and the other was transported to Orange County Global Medical Center, Kurtz said.
Although the Angels are wandering through a mediocre season, Trout is still having a great season with 25 homers and 84 RBIs. The accident shouldn’t affect Trout’s season and Angels General Manager Billy Eppler isn’t too concerned about Trout’s availability going forward.
“I have spoken with Mike this evening and he feels fine,” Eppler said. “He is at home with his roommate and is planning on traveling with the club to Seattle tomorrow afternoon. We will update as more information becomes available.”
Hopefully the other two individuals in the crash can fully recover from any injuries they may have suffered.
