Apparently he was in a car at a track in California and suffered burns when it caught fire. Just reported on NBC.

I'll bet that was real scary for his family considering the history.

i was watching it on tv while it happened (it was after the QB challenge and i was doing laundry). It was weird how it just suddenly burst into flames, apparently he broke a gas line and a hot pipe or something ignited the car. I heard that he only received second degree burns... that's still gotta hurt. :devil2:

I am glad he is ok, even if I am not a fan, I never ever want to see anyone hurt
