Wild surveillance video shows Errol Spence Jr.’s white Ferrari flipping over several times on a Dallas street in a crash that left the undefeated welterweight boxing champion severely injured.
The fighter’s ride caught air and rolled at least four times, leaving a trail of brown smoke in its wake, according to footage of Thursday’s terrifying early morning crash obtained by CBS 11.
Police say Spence, 29, wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from his speeding sports car along South Riverfront Boulevard near I-30 around 3 a.m.
Other footage obtained by the outlet appears to show two vehicles driving through the wreckage without stopping, though the boxer was lying injured in the street at the time.
He suffered some broken teeth and other injuries and is in the intensive care unit at Methodist Dallas Medical center, the outlet reported.
Spence’s managing company, Premier Boxing Champions, said he is “expected to make a full recovery.”
The world-class welterweight didn’t break or fracture any bones but suffered facial lacerations, the company said in a statement.
“He is currently resting with his family by his side,” the statement said. “They want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes and are extremely grateful to the Dallas first responders who rushed to the scene to attend to Errol after the accident and the doctors who are taking care of him at the hospital.”
Spence was born on Long Island and has family spread throughout the area, including in the Bronx, according to Ring TV.
