Michigan State players William Gholston and Lawrence Thomas suffered minor injuries after being involved in a car accident on Wednesday, according to the Detroit Free Press.

The accident occurred at about 3:40 p.m. ET Wednesday on Interstate 96, near Brighton, Mich. State police told the paper that a woman lost control of her car when another vehicle tried to change lanes in front of her. She veered into the path of an SUV driven by Gholston.

The two cars crashed and rolled into a ditch off the shoulder. Gholston, Thomas and the woman were all wearing their seat belts and suffered only some "scratches and abrasions," state trooper Greg Galarneau told the Free Press. No one was hospitalized.

The school released a statement Thursday:

"William Gholston and Lawrence Thomas were shaken after being involved in a rollover accident Wednesday afternoon. The police responded within minutes of the accident, and thankfully, no one was seriously injured. Fortunately, both of them were wearing their seat belts, and that made a difference in ensuring their safety."
