A.J Ferrari, one of WWE’s fifteen signees to their NIL (Next In Line) program has been seriously injured in a car accident.
According to ESPN, the wrestler from Oklahoma State University was driving near Perkins, Oklahoma on Monday night. Ferrari reportedly “attempted to pass 3 vehicles while cresting a hill.” Ferrari’s SUV would then hit an oncoming vehicle, left the roadway to the left and overturned several times before coming to a rest in a ditch. The cause of the collision has been ruled as “passing in a no-passing zone.” The OHP said all involved in the incident were wearing seat belts.
OSU’s football offensive coordinator Kasey Dunn, was coincidentally in one of the cars Ferarri passed. Following the crash, Dunn and an unknown man pulled Ferrari out of the car after a small fire started burning on the car’s hood. Shortly after the car was “engulfed” in flames.
Ferrari was listed as in “fair condition” after being transferred to a hospital in Oklahoma City. Ferrari’s father would add further details on his Facebook page, writing the following;
“He [A.J] has fluid in his lungs that is affecting his oxygen levels and some bad bruising with some internal bleeding, so they are keeping him here,
“If you saw the car and AJ, you would know this was a miracle”
The other driver involved in the incident, Valenda McKee, 56, of Ripley, Oklahoma, was not injured, according to the report from the OHP.
Ferrari had one passenger in his car track star Isai Rodriguez. The police report notes that Rodriguez was transported to the hospital by helicopter, where he was also listed as in fair condition with internal, arm, leg and head injuries.
