Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is thankfully in good health after being involved in a car crash on Thursday.

As passed along by Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Martin was driving his car when someone blew through a stop sign and hit his car.

Jenna Laine of ESPN provided the following details on the crash itself:

“According to Tampa Police, at approximately 1:15 p.m., Martin’s black BMW was struck by a black Kia in the middle of an intersection, resulting in the Kia ramming into the side of a periodontist’s office and destroying an air conditioning unit.”

Martin has been getting rave reviews for his performance of late. He’s likely to be Tampa Bay’s starting running back in 2017, after he serves his four-game suspension for testing positive for a banned substance.
