Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been issued a citation for speeding and failing to control his vehicle in the one-vehicle rollover crash he was in earlier this week. The citation was issued in court on Thursday by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, who say that Garrett was driving at a speed that wasn't safe for that type of roadway.
Garrett and a passenger were traveling away from the Browns practice facility in his Porsche on Monday afternoon when the crash occurred. According to the crash report, Garrett was driving 65 mph in a 45 mph zone when his car drove off the west side of the roadway, struck a ditch and a fire hydrant, then rolled over several times before coming to a stop.
Police bodycam footage of the accident was released on Tuesday. It shows Garrett sitting on the roadside being evaluated by what appear to be firefighter medics. His battered car is just behind him. He identifies a few areas of injury concern, namely his bicep, and then walks to the ambulance. The passenger appears to be lying on the ground nearby while being tended to by another medic.
The Browns have confirmed that Garrett sustained a shoulder sprain, biceps strain, minor lacerations and bumps and bruises in the crash. He and the passenger, who also sustained non-life-threatening injuries, were taken to a local hospital for treatment and released Monday night.
Garrett has a prior history of speeding. According to cleveland.com, he's been issued five speeding citations over the last four years. Just a year ago, on Sept. 24, 2021, Garrett was cited for driving 120 mph in a 70-mph zone. The very next day he was cited for driving 105 mph in a 70-mph zone, but that was later amended to 99 mph.
It's not known if Garrett will play in the Browns' Sunday afternoon contest against the Atlanta Falcons.
