Jimbo Fisher involved in car accident

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher was involved in an early Saturday morning car accident that sent two people to the hospital.

Fisher was on his way to FSU’s campus around 7:30 a.m. when his company car collided with another vehicle at the intersection of Tennessee and Bronough streets.

Fisher’s 2015 Mercedes Benz S550 hit a pole after the collision, but he did not report any injuries, according to a Tallahassee Police Department report. He was present at FSU’s practice on Saturday as the Seminoles are preparing for their spring game on in Orlando this weekend.

The driver and a passenger in the other car, both 27 years old, were taken to the hospital for injuries. One person reported hip and back pain, while the other suffered neck, head and back pain. A 1-year-old passenger in the vehicle was not taken to the hospital.

Police could not determine which driver was at fault for the accident. Both drivers thought they had a green light at the intersection, and no independent witnesses were at the scene. Wet road conditions were also a contributing factor.

Neither driver was suspected of using alcohol or drugs, according to the report. Both cars, which were towed away from the scene, had an estimated $5,000 in damage.
