One of the top quarterback recruits in the nation finds himself in some legal trouble after he's alleged to have struck a tree with his car, then got back in the car and hit a parked car before leaving the scene.
Kevin Olsen, a Miami (Fla.) four-star recruit from Wayne, N.J. (and the brother of former Hurricanes tight end Greg Olsen), is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident and careless driving, according to court records obtained by the Wayne Patch. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel also reported on the incident.
What makes this accident a bit unusual is that according to the report Olsen hit a tree, got out to survey the damage, got back in his car and then hit another vehicle.
The Wayne Patch reported that a bystander told police Olsen got back in his car after hitting the tree, then struck a parked car and walked away from the scene. According to the court report obtained by the Wayne Patch, the bystander told police, "Olsen’s face appeared to have blood on it and that he 'appeared to be under the influence of something.'"
The Sun-Sentinel said a Miami spokesperson said the school is looking into the incident.
Olsen is ranked as the 12th best pro-style quarterback in the class of 2013 by Rivals.com.
