WILDWOOD, Mo. (AP) – St. Louis Cardinals third baseman David Freese is OK after crashing his SUV while trying to avoid a deer.
The accident happened Thursday afternoon in the St. Louis suburb of Wildwood. The 29-year-old most valuable player of the 2011 World Series crashed his black 2011 Range Rover into a tree but missed the deer.
Freese refused medical attention and his SUV was towed from the scene. Investigators say alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
