A horrific car crash was captured on camera on Thursday night in Dallas, Texas, showing a white Ferrari violently flipping over several times before coming to a sudden stop. The car was being driven by Errol Spence, the welterweight IBF and WBC world champion.
According to the local police, the crash occurred at 2:53 am on the Riverfront Boulevard. Due to the excessive speed, the Ferrari 488 Spider veered over the center median onto the opposite lane, and flipped.

Because of to the extremely violent nature of the crash, and the fact that he was not wearing the seat belt, Spence was ejected out of the car.

Police do not yet say what the cause of the crash may be – except for the mention that the Ferrari was traveling at “a high rate of speed.”

Throughout the day, conflicting reports surfaced, claiming Spence is either in intensive care, seriously injured, or unharmed. The boxer’s representatives issued a statement on Friday, essentially saying he’s alive and well.

"Spence is awake and responding and his condition is listed as stable. He did not sustain any broken bones or fractures, but has some facial lacerations,” the statement by Premiere Boxing Champions reads.

“Errol is currently resting with his family by his side. They want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes and are extremely grateful to the Dallas first responders who rushed to the scene to attend to Errol after the accident and the doctors who are taking care of him at the hospital.”

The a video of last night’s crash, posted below, was captured by CCTV cameras in the area. They show just how brutal the entire accident was, and makes Spence’s survival nothing short of a miracle.

Errol Spence managed to unify the IBF and WBC titles at the end of September, beating Shawn Porter at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. It's too early to say when the boxer will be back in the ring.
