Tom Brady: ‘I Was Scared Out of My Mind’ Following Car Crash

Tom Brady spoke out about last Thursday's car accident Monday morning. As you'd expect, it was a pretty traumatic experience.

In his weekly appearance on WEEI, Brady said "I was scared out of my mind. I'm telling you, when it
happened, I didn't even know what to do, because you're just in shock. I
was kind of sitting there in the car, looking around, trying to get my
bearings. And then I got out of the car and I saw a woman and I said,
'Are you OK?' And she said, 'Yeah.' And she said, 'How are you?' I
said, 'I'm fine.' And I was just kind of looking around, I was looking
in the other car to make sure they were OK."

He continued to narrate his thoughts.

"The next thing, a guy says, 'Hey, do you want to call 911?' I said,
'God, that would be a good idea, wouldn't it?' So I did that. But I
didn't even think about doing that. I was just thinking, 'How am I
going to — I've got to call [Bill] Belichick, I'm going to be late [for
practice].' And then once I got home, then it really hits you."

Brady said that he was driving conscientiously when the accident occurred.

"As a matter of fact, I was the most non-distracted driver that
morning," he claimed. "My hands were at 10 and 2 [o'clock], I mean, I was doing
everything right. I can't always say that. Sometimes, the way I drive is
a bit more dangerous. It was one of those fluky things.

"That was a scary morning for all of us," he added. "Man, wear your seat belts. That's all I can tell everybody. You never know."

Still, Brady said that he had been hit harder before.

"Ray Lewis got me last year in the playoff game pretty bad, one that I still feel from time to time."
