CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - A Miami football player was charged with careless driving and a highly touted freshman quarterback was among three players injured early Monday after a one-car crash in southwest Florida.
The car overturned several times before stopping on its roof. The Florida Highway Patrol says alcohol was not a factor.
Jermaine McKenzie was ticketed after telling troopers he fell asleep while driving a 2007 Dodge Charger on Interstate 75 near Naples.
Quarterback Robert Marve was in the back seat and suffered what the FHP termed as minor injuries.
Officials say a third player, Colin McCarthy, also was mildly shaken up.
McCarthy is a sophomore linebacker for the Hurricanes. McKenzie is a wide receiver; both he and Marve are incoming freshmen at Miami. Officials say McKenzie and McCarthy were both wearing seat belts.
