Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was involved in a car wreck in Dallas on Wednesday night, Rebecca Lopez of WFAA reports. Jones was transported to Parkland Hospital, but Dallas police sources told Lopez that Jones’ injuries are not serious.

Emergency crews were called to the wreck in the area of Wolf and Harry Hines Boulevard in Dallas at 8:10 p.m.

No other details were immediately available, so it is unknown whether Jones was driving or a passenger in the car.

Jones, 79, frequently uses his helicopter to get from his home in Dallas to the team’s training complex in Frisco or AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

He just spent last weekend at the team facility for the draft as the Cowboys selected nine prospects.

  1. I give Jerry a lot of crap on this forum, but hope he’s okay and has a speedy recovery.

  2. jerry doesn’t drive. he has had the same driver for 30 years. so if it wasn’t the driver it was his admin, someone in his family or one of the coaches

  3. Hopefully the guy wasn’t piloting the car himself. You’d think a limo is his primary mode of transportation, given his age & vast wealth.

  4. I have no love for JJ but I do wish him a fast recovery.

  5. The only way Jerry was driving is if it was something out of the movie “Dave.”

  6. Like him or not, no one tries harder as an owner than Jerry. For all the banter he constantly preaches, he wants to win. Lots of teams could us an ownership that seems to care ie lions, bears and others.
    The GM job should be someone besides Jerry for sure. Hope he’s ok.

  7. Jerry is fine, here is the latest release.

    He was then transported to a hospital for “precautionary reasons.”

  8. Mr. Jones is one of the very few owners that actually played the game of football at the college level. So when he has an opinion it means something. And he knows hot to take and give a hit. So to all you Lookie Lou’s that think football players are wearing costumes-show respect.

  9. Met him in the hallway of the old metrodome several years ago and he couldn’t have been more gracious. A lot of people justifiably give him crap, but anyone in his position that is still nice to the little people ain’t all bad. I hope he’s okay.

  10. He’s one of the few true “characters” left in the sport after Al Davis, and he isn’t someone anyone wants to lose. You have to admire an owner like that no matter what team you like.

    Get better soon JJ, and let this be a lesson to everyone about the dangers of Dallas drivers.
