Broncos running back De'Angelo Henderson is feeling fortunate to be alive — and ready to play football — after he was in what could have been a serious accident.

Henderson wrote on Instagram that he is dealing with only minor injuries and expects to be ready to participate in Denver’s Organized Team Activities.

“With OTAs a week a way and a season that I’m competing for a significant role, the most traumatic event I’ve probably ever had to deal with occurs,” Henderson wrote. “T-boned, airborne, flipped, and rolled. I plowed through my jammed door and exit my Jeep on my own. I’m truly blessed that God protected me through this accident. Without his favor I don’t know if I would’ve survived. I’m thankful to only came out with minor injuries and a few scrapes and bruises. Thank you to the Parker Police and South Metro Fire Rescue in Parker for getting to me asap, attending all my needs and transporting me to the hospital safely. Thank you to the doctors at Parker Adventist for treating me as a first class patient also. I’m very grateful and humbled to be alive. My family and I thanks everyone who has prayed for me over the last few days. My thoughts and prayers are with the other victims and I hope they all are safe and doing well.”

Henderson told Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver that he feels sore, but it’s comparable to the soreness he feels after a hard-fought game.

According to 9 News, the driver of the other car was Rainbow Sunset Espinoza, a 37-year-old woman who is facing 11 charges: stealing a vehicle, driving recklessly, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, evading police, failing to turn on her headlights, driving a car without plates, driving while her license was revoked, running red lights, criminal mischief, possession of burglary tools and second-degree assault with a deadly weapon.

Henderson was one of four people injured, but all of them have now been released from the hospital.

    That’s quite a laundry list of charges holy moly!

    Rainbow Sunset sounds a new scent of Glade Plugins.

    You’re not sure how any of this works I see.

  5. Also I like how he gets made fun of in several comments for thanking God. What tf do you guys want from people? If they’re criminals, you talk smack, if they’re well grounded people who thank God, you talk smack. Y’all need to take your negativity off a cliff with you.

    Where are all the marijuana advocates today? Still sleeping I imagine.

    Right along side the alcohol people. What smart comment do you have when a sober person is in a similar accident? Drugs or alcohol aren’t a requirement for an accident nor is not using them any guarantee of safety.

  7. One should never drive a car without plates while the headlights are off,damn thats just begging to get pulled over.with a name like Rainbow Sunset its obvious the apple didnt fall far from the stoned tree.

    Leave it to a Packer fan to denigrate a guy’s faith. We don’t take shots at you just because you think Aaron Rodgers is God.
    ——————————————————
    Actually we DO take shots at Packer fans for thinking Rodgers is God and deservedly so. They think that way because he is the only thing that has kept their team relevant. Just imagine how many SB rings Rodgers would have if he played on a good team. Once he is gone they have nothing left but beer and cheese.

    The falsity of this argument is that people that believe in an invisible sky daddy are well grounded instead of delusional with a form of mental illness.
