TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - FSU Football Head Coach Jimbo Fisher was involved in a car accident which sent two others to the hospital.

According to the report from the Tallahassee Police Department, the crash happened just before 7:30 a.m. on Saturday at the intersection of West Tennessee Street and North Bronough Street.

The drivers of both cars involved reported the light at the intersection was green. The car driven by Fisher, which was heading east on Tennessee, crashed into the second car traveling south on Bronough. 

The bumpers of both cars hit each other, sending them onto Bronough, where they each came to a stop, the report states.

Fisher was alone in the car, the report stated. The other car involved had a driver and a passenger, both 27-years old, as well as a 1-year-old child. 

Fisher was uninjured while the driver and passenger in the other car were transported to the hospital, the report states. The driver complained of shoulder, hip and back pain while the passenger complained of neck, head and back pain. The child did not have any reported injuries.

There were no independent witnesses on scene, and police said they are unable to identify who was at fault at this time. They said that wet road conditions could have also played a role in the crash.

The car Fisher was driving was owned by Florida State University, the report states.
