Jakub Voracek involved in car crash

USA TODAY Sports

Jakub Voracek totalled his car in a crash in his hometown.

Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek was involved in a car crash in his hometown of Kladno at 11:30 a.m., local time. Voracek did not sustain any injuries as part of the collision, but his Ferrari was not as lucky. The damage done to the car made it all the more evident how fortunate Voracek was to walk away unscathed.

According to a report by Sport.cz, Voracek was speeding and was the primary cause of the collision. Due to the foreign nature of the report, Google translate was used in ascertaining that information. It appears, based upon the translation, that Voracek was attempting to avoid a head-on collision with a truck. He was not under the influence of alcohol, took responsibility for the accident and paid fines.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren released a statement explaining he had spoken to Voracek and that he had not sustained any injuries as part of the crash. Voracek also corresponded with Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia to confirm he was fine.
