Police: Garrett of the Browns was 20 mph over the speed limit when he flipped the car | cleveland browns

Cleveland Browns All-Pro Myles Garrett returned to team headquarters Thursday after crashing his car earlier this week. Police said he lost control of his vehicle as he was speeding down a country road after practice.

Garrett swerved his Porsche off the mountain road near his home a few hours after practice Monday, flipping the vehicle and hitting a fire hydrant. The defensive end suffered a sprained shoulder, strained biceps and multiple cuts and bruises from the accident. On Thursday, the Ohio State Highway Patrol cited Garrett for speeding, saying he was going 65 mph in a 45 mph zone.

According to the accident report, Garrett, who had a woman as a passenger in his car, told an officer he was speeding up the hill when he saw a vehicle coming from the opposite direction, but did not make any maneuvers to avoid a crash. . . The officer said Garrett couldn’t remember exactly how she ran off the road.

A witness at the scene told the highway patrol that they “came flying over the hill, they flew, they took out the fire hydrant and they rolled three times.”

Garrett and his 23-year-old passenger were taken to Akron General Hospital for emergency care. The highway patrol said the passenger suffered a minor head injury. Both were released a few hours later.

Garrett has a history of speeding. He was cited on consecutive days in Medina County last year for driving 120 mph. In the second case, he paid a fine in which the speed was changed to 99 mph in a 70 mph zone.

Garrett has not yet been ruled out for Sunday’s game in Atlanta. Coach Kevin Stefanski said team doctors would evaluate Garrett before practice or play. The Browns (2-1) are missing several defensive starters due to injuries as they prepare for the Falcons (1-2).

On Wednesday, Stefanski and several of Garrett’s teammates offered their gratitude and relief that he was not more seriously injured.

“Something like that happens, it’s terrifying to anybody,” safety John Johnson III said. “But I heard that he had his seat belt on. I don’t know if that helped or not, but it was fine. I’m glad he got out of there clean.”

The No. 1 overall pick in 2017, Garrett needs a sack to pass Clay Matthews (62) for the team’s career high.

The Browns, who had an extended layoff after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers last Thursday, are dealing with skin injuries on their defense. Along with Garrett, flanker Jadeveon Clowney (ankle), cornerback Denzel Ward (back, ribs), linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (groin) and tackle Taven Bryan (hamstring) were also left out.
