Broncos RB De'Angelo Henderson miraculously OK after auto crash

According to Denver-area media reports, police in suburban Parker were trying to stop a suspected stolen vehicle just after 8 p.m. Saturday when it fled, crashing into several other cars. The woman is also suspected of driving under the influence, according to police records.

All De'Angelo Henderson wanted to do was get some barbecue in a Denver suburb on Saturday evening. I'm truly blessed that God protected me through this accident.

"I don't know if lucky is the word", Henderson told Denver's 9News.

Despite the ordeal, Henderson said he escaped with "only minor injuries and a few scrapes and bruises", and he was transported to a hospital following the crash. A woman in a stolen vehicle entered a high-speed police chase and wound up hospitalizing four people, including Henderson.

Henderson described the incident to 9 News: "At the last second I saw a truck plow into my passenger side", he said. He described how his vehicle "T-boned" and went "airborne" and thanked the Parker Police and South Metro Fire Rescue in Parker for helping him. I was very fortunate.

"For the most part my body in general is sore", Henderson told 9News, claiming that he got out of his auto by unbuckling himself and hitting the jammed door with his shoulder while laying on the roof.

Henderson said he is rehabbing and trying to get ready for organized team activities (OTAs) next week.

"With OTAs a week a way and a season that I'm competing for a significant roll, the most traumatic event I've probably ever had to deal with occurs", he wrote. She faces charges including vehicular assault, eluding, motor vehicle theft, DUI-Drugs, and several traffic offenses.

Henderson, a sixth-round pick a year ago out of Coastal Carolina, had seven carries last season for a total of 13 yards.

Henderson thanked on his Instagram and Facebook posts the responding police and fire rescue, and the doctors who treated him.
