More details from single car accident involving Seahawks Fred Jackson

Seattle Seahawks running back Fred Jackson crashed a black 2016 Chevrolet Corvette through a stop sign while leaving the team practice facility on Tuesday afternoon.

The incident occurred at 4:49 p.m. PT at the intersection of Seahawks Way and Lake Washington Boulevard just south of the Virginia Mason Athletic Center. After crashing through the pole at the corner of the intersection, Jackson’s vehicle came to rest with the sign embedded in the front. The sign was later removed when the car was taken from the scene by tow truck.

A team source said Jackson was uninjured in the accident and was taken back to the team’s facility after speaking with police at the scene. Several teammates, including Richard Sherman and Marshawn Lynch, stopped to check on Jackson before leaving the accident site.

Initial reports of the accident claimed that Jackson and Lynch were racing their vehicles when the accident happened. The Renton Police Department said there is no indication that is what occurred.

Renton Public Information Officer David Leibman said if Jackson is to be cited for the incident it would be for inattention to driving, which is a minor offense.

  1. He was late for church, leading the procession there was his pastime in Buffalo. Ask Dareus after he helped him after his car crash, what a Saint.

  2. These hoodlums need to be arrested and suspended for at least 6 weeks. The team docs went straight to the site got Jackson and assessed him there, not the hospital. I am guessing they didn’t anyone to take blood test and find out about the pED problem in Seattle.

  3. Those darned stop signs just have a way of jumping out in front of NFL players with high powered cars, don’t they?

    Nah, he couldn’t have been drag racing. Impossible. Or maybe not.

  4. Seahawks breaking the law again, “1-2’s” breaking the law with pulling fire alarms. The team is not trusting each other or the coaches anymore. I see why Pete is already planning his exit strategy to USC.

  5. Inattention to driving?
    Sounds lame to me.
    Careless driving makes more sense.

    What was Marshawn driving and, can we assume he won?

  6. Taking TMZ’s word as gospel was your second mistake. Believing the Seahawks will continue their spiral was your first.

  7. Nice to see the Seahawks response to another tough loss is to rev it up during the week of practice and challenge each other.

  8. Right…nothing being swept under the rug here…move along. Wonder where all the 2012’s are calling out their own team players after bashing the 49ers incidents the last couple years. #hypocrites

  9. I know what happened.
    Fred Jackson drove 88MPH and was sure he’ll travel in time, but instead he ran that post. #BackToTheFurure

  10. That is some stone cold paparazzi gangster photo credit I’m looking at.

  11. Of course there’s no reason to believe such a thing! It’s unthinkable. The epitome of ‘move along, nothing to see here, just a couple of millionaire football players getting away with it, even if they are 2-4’.

  12. Amazing what a few tickets to the game donated to the police can get you.

    Either way it isn’t a major police incident but one get’s Fred and Marshawn suspended and the other doesn’t.

  13. So we can expect all those keyboard bullies who blasted Lynch to now offer up apologies. Sure they will.

  14. How many games is Tom Brady going to be suspended for this? Clearly it is more probable than not that Brady is generally aware that a Corvette can go fast. And a fast moving Corvette can get out of control and crash into a pole.

  15. This team is imploding. The coach has no control over the players, and the players Ego’s can’t get along now that God has become a Packers fan again. How bout that offensive coordinator?

  16. must have been going really, really fast not to be able to maneuver a Corvette around a tight turn.

  17. I can’t tell from the pictures of a very blacked out Corvette, but I have a few thoughts…If that’s a Z06, he’s got 650 HP, which is more than just about anything else in the world. Losing control of something like that would be pretty easy to do if you aren’t incredibly careful.

  18. Bunch of lies. So Freddy cannot drive, he blocks and catches, that’s why he is here.
    Go Hawks!
    At least Freddy has a government motors car! Lol

    Fred was probably looking out his side window to see whether he or Marshawn was in the lead, thus the ‘inattention to driving’

    especially when you’re racing

  21. no indication that occurred… ahhh how about the stop sign embedded in the front of the car!! last i seen, that doesn’t happen at the oh 35mph you should be driving on city streets.

    Yeah TMZ is a crap shoot. I remember reading that Lamar Odom was dead on TMZ a week ago. Unless someone pulled a Lazarus Project, TMZ was full of it again. Just like they were full of it on the Kaepernick alleged Sexual Assault last year.

  23. If it was Aldon Smith, he’d have gone back to practice drunk.

    If it was Chris Culliver, he would have threatened the responding officer with brass knuckles.

  24. This is what happens when spoiled children can’t handle their toys

    Too much money not enough sense

  25. It’s a good thing that TMZ lobs things out there without confirmation and has no backlash for it because most of the public is full of morons and believes their stories, which they’re usually about 30% right on. Good job helping that scum organization grow America. Keep clicking.

  27. Is this really that big a deal? A guy runs his car into a light pole goofing around in the parking lot?

    This happens every week in every town in America, except usually it’s a teenager in a $1500 beater. I am sure that Freddy can cover the tab.

    There really is nothing to see here. Don’t act like you didn’t do this yourself or have someone you know do this in high school.

  28. He was speeding and lost control of his car. He also damaged public property. They can bill him for the damage. People who are merely inattentive do not hit a sign with so much force that it becomes embedded into the front of the car. The damage should have been limited to the bumper if he was not speeding.

    Isn’t today the actual day, from the 2nd movie?

  30. Unconfirmed reports indicate that Malcolm Butler was seen driving irraticaly in the MVP truck that he received from Tom Brady. He was later stopped but the police were only able to cite him for under inflated tires.

  31. Hmmm, sounds like the police are looking the other way even though it’s pretty obvious what was going on. #StopSignsMatter

  32. Love the Seahawk fans still running up the “we will be fine flag”

    This is a Rusell Wilson Injury from being a 4-12 football team…

    The can’t run effectively, they aren’t blocking, the pass rush is severely diminished, and now the can’t stop anybody in the secondary, and their all pros are losing assignments….

    It’s not one thing wrong with the Seahawks….it’s ALL things wrong right now

  33. Love the (afraid to say my team) fan with the stupid injury theory.

    Here’s a clue: Any team is an injury away from being a 4-12 football team. Your stupid statement has no meaning.

  34. Suspend Jackson now! Old drag racing trick is to let some air out of the tires to increase the size of a tires contact patch. Four games seems appropriate based on NFL policy about illegal under inflation. #brady

  35. Probably dropped a lit blunt in his lap, hit the ‘Go’ pedal hard trying to dig it out, and took out the sign. Happens all the time.

  36. So it’s criminal reckless driving if I’m safely doing 80 in a 70 but “inattention to driving” and a minor offense if I smash my car through a stop sign?

  37. Fred Jackson is new to the team and it takes a while for a body to adjust to the PEDs in the Seahawk’s Gatorade. He should know better than to operate a vehicle right after a Seahawks practice.

  38. If you were driving normal speeds you wouldn’t wreck your car so bad you embed a stop sign and it needs to be towed away.

  39. Also, I love the “police looking the other way crowd.” Sure guys. But when a regular citizen gets shot in the back or gets beat by the police or choked out, you’re inclined to believe everything they say about how they were provoked. This time, they say nothing happened, and you think there is a grand conspiracy as to why a guy in a fast car was going fast in it without it being a drag race since everyone except the moron who was tipping off TMZ, that haven of truthfulness, said teammates just came to check on him after he wrecked like Paul Walker or Jerome Brown and was fortunate it wasn’t worse. Next time we get another one of those police brutality stories though, I’ll be looking for this same level of skepticism as to what they’re saying, especially when the evidence contradicts what they said, which in this case it does not.
