The Ohio State Highway Patrol said in a statement that soldiers arrived at the scene of the accident to find Garrett’s damaged car on the side of the road after it appeared to roll over several times. Garrett was driving on State Road in Sharon Township as he traveled south after leaving team headquarters in Berea, Ohio.

Highway Patrol does not suspect impairment by drugs or alcohol. Both Garrett and his passenger were wearing seat belts in his Porsche 911 Turbo S. The crash is still under investigation.

One of the NFL’s most dominant defensive players, 26-year-old Garrett has 61 1/2 sacks in 71 games. He needs a sack to pass Clay Matthews for the team’s career record.

The Browns drafted Garrett with the first overall pick in 2017.
