Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot in good spirits after reported car crash


Dallas Cowboys' rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott is reported to be in good health following a "minor rear-ending" car accident, according to USA TODAY sports.

The accident occurred early Wednesday morning at an intersection just a half-mile away from the Cowboys' training facility in Frisco, Tex, according to police spokesperson Benny Valdez.

No other details have been made public, including who was at fault.

Despite the accident, the 21-year-old appeared to be in high spirits. 

This is the second car accident for Elliot in about a one-year span. In December 2015, he was cited for three violations after he lost control of his vehicle in Columbus, Ohio. Elliot went unharmed, but the passenger suffered minor injuries. 

Going back to as early as September 2014, Elliot has received four citations for driving at unreasonable speeds.

News of the accident attracted the attention of sports fans, who were ultimately relieved.

The fender bender occurred just days before the Dallas Cowboys face off against the Green Bay Packers on Jan. 15.
