Toews in car accident

Hit a pole this morning per the Score. Left in an ambulance, seemed to be ok.

Hope he didn't pass out due to post concussion symptoms which made him crash.

Damn, I hope he's alright. I know driving in the city is crazy, but I can't imagine how he'd hit a pole. Hope it's not because of PCS, like someone mentioned.

It was wet out there today. I hope it's just because of that. Maybe someone was going to hit him and he swirved into the pole.

Only one website has reported this, with no actual photos of Toews, just pictures of a black Mercedes.

Zawaski claiming he has "sources" again. Would love to hear some names.

He's also reported that Toews didn't appear to be injured in the incident, though he left in an ambulance. If he was in a car accident, that makes sense.

Wasn't going to link them though. Didn't see the need to give them hits for what is so far nothing but rumor-mongering.

Maybe, probably has more to do with it being Toews but who knows. I once got plowed by a suburban, glass everywhere, car spinning around and ended up on the sidewalk totalled. I went to a pay phone and called someone to pick me up, no ambulance.

Looks like he hit that pole pretty dead on.

Yeah he did. But, speeds are around 25MPH there, still, obviously those beams won't budge. Looks like Mercedes does a good job with their cars.

I called up my friend and he set me straight.

They'll take you if you ask, or obviously if you're injured. But if you don't say anything, they don't have to do anything.

In all of the car accidents I've been in, or people close to me have been in, an ambulance trip has been absolutely necessary. Even if it weren't, I would probably go just to be sure. Especially if I was a pro athlete.

Looks like it was on Wabash (where the Brown line runs and the poles are exposed in the street). Gonna sound weird, but I know that Toews lives in Trump Tower so it would make sense that he would have to drive down Wabash to Madison to get to the UC.

Edit: Maybe not Wabash necessarily, but definitely under the tracks in the loop. Either way, he's right in the neighborhood to be driving around under them on his way to the UC.

Trib is saying they texted Toews number and got the response "its nothing serious"

Should've been driving his Chevy from the commercials. That thing can clearly move on ice.

Glad he's all right and we don't have another Heatley on our team.

Well at least we have conformation on this story.

I love how the media works. Yesterday, Zawaski (the only one that reported it) says "a source" tells him Toews has a concussion and today it is a known fact.

Nucks fans are obviously still hurt from some words that Toews said.

Yeah, it's not hard to imagine people hitting those steel columns supporting the L. They are annoyingAF and you have weave through them to get into the turn lane in many spots.

Hopefully this wasn't a result of him tripping balls from his concussion
