Nate Burleson posts pizza accident pictures, and frankly he’s lucky to be alive

Last week, Detroit Lions wide receiver suffered a broken arm in a car accident after his pizza has slipped off the seat of his vehicle.

Now we have seen the damage to the car, which Burleson posted on Instagram. Frankly, he's lucky to be alive.

Burleson seemed to recognize this in the post, even if he did so in a lighthearted manner:

I'm releasing these pix for 2 reasons: 1) I walked away from a totalled vehicle #Blessed 2) I have to hear all the pizza I'll start-Yes I am the 5th Ninja Turtle. #LovePizza #LetTheJokesBegin

The whole front end of Burleson's car was peeled back, like from a giant can opener. Scary stuff. We're glad Burleson was as lucky as he was.
