New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso told reporters that he’s lucky to be alive and well after being involved in a terrible car crash in Tampa.
The slugger says another driver ran a red light and T-boned his car, causing it to flip over. Alonso says he had to kick out his windshield to escape his overturned vehicle.
“I’m really thankful to be alive,” the 2019 All-Star reserve explained.
He added that the people in the other vehicle were not seriously hurt. His wife, who was trailing him in a separate vehicle, sprang into action.
“She alerted the authorities and got people to help out before the authorities showed up,” he said. “It was awesome.”
