Dolphins defensive tackle Kendrick Norton was cited for improper lane change during the accident that cost him his left arm. The crash occurred when Norton’s truck struck another vehicle after an improper lane change.
Norton then lost control of his vehicle, it hit a concrete barrier and flipped. The NFL player and his female passenger were seriously hurt.
Via TMZ Sports:
According to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, the Florida Highway Patrol responded the wreck at 1:18 AM on a Miami highway. When they arrived, officers noticed Norton’s 2017 F-250 pickup truck flipped on its roof. Norton and his female passenger suffered major injuries in the crash and were both transported to a nearby hospital. Now, cops are spelling out what caused the crash — and all signs point to Norton making a dangerous decision behind the wheel. Cops say Norton was exiting the highway on the Northbound exit ramp when he made a last-second decision to switch to the Southbound exit ramp.
As Norton (Vehicle 1) was making his move, he sideswiped another car — a 2015 Maserati Quattroporte — which sent Norton careening into a barrier and ultimately causing his car to flip.
It’s unfortunate a simple mistake behind the wheel cost Norton his arm and his career. It would be even more tragic if alcohol had played a role in the accident.
