Jerry Jones escapes minor incident

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones was in a minor car crash Wednesday in the Dallas, Texas area. Jones, 79, was taken to the hospital as a precaution, a source confirmed to ESPN.  

Jones’ son and Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said that his father had made it back home and was “all good.” 

WFAA, a Dallas local news network, reported that the crash happened around 8:10 p.m. CT near Wolf and Harry Hines Boulevard. EMS were called to the scene and treated Jones for minor injuries.

It is unknown if Jones was operating the vehicle during the crash— Dallas police said that it will not disclose names of persons involved in non-fatal car crashes.

Jones was uncharacteristically quiet during free agency after previously targeting big-name players on the open market; he also vehemently defended the Cowboys’ selection of Tulsa offensive lineman Tyler Smith, who led college football in penalties and was expected to slide to one of the later rounds.
