Tom Brady in Back Bay car smashup this morning
Tom Brady was in a two-car accident this morning at Comm. Ave. and Gloucester Street. Channel 7 has some video which seems to show that the front of Brady's Audi hit the right side of a mini-van. The Globe reports fire crews had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate a man from the rear of the mini-van. Dennis and Callahan report the quarterback refused a trip to the ER.
Channel 4 reports:
A spokesperson for Mayor Tom Menino confirmed to WBZ Radio that Brady was in an accident.
Ed. cranky media note: God! Which is worse: That a reporter would immediately think to call the mayor's press secretary about Brady's car accident or that she would immediately know the answer? Does BPD have some sort of protocol for informing the mayor whenever a local celebrity is in a car accident? Also, while it's nice Brady survived, what about the guy who had to be peeled out of the other vehicle?
