Former Michigan quarterback and current Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson drove his car into a pond after appearing to be “asleep or fatigued” at the wheel early Sunday morning, according to Action News Jax in Jacksonville.
Robinson confirmed the accident on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
“I just wanted to let everyone know that I was involved in a single-car accident on Saturday night, and thankfully, everyone was safe and remained unharmed,” Robinson said in a statement. “I should not have been driving that late or when I was that tired, but again, I’m just glad that everyone was safe.”
Robinson’s car was submerged in water on the driver’s side after he accidentally drove it into a retention pond at 4:20 a.m. Sunday morning. The police report states Robinson and an adult female passenger were “asleep/passed out” in the car, according to Action News Jax.
Robinson is entering his fourth season in Jacksonville. He has accumulated 914 rushing yards and five touchdowns during his first three seasons with the Jaguars.
