That’s Karl-Anthony Towns opening up about the car crash that left him hospitalized before the NBA season … revealing he’s lucky to be alive.
The Minnesota Timberwolves star has still not revealed the exact date and location of the crash — but opened up about the incident with reporters on Wednesday night.
KAT says he was going to visit his girlfriend, Jordyn Woods, at a photo shoot during the NBA offseason when a drunk driver slammed into him out of nowhere.
“I was 2 minutes from the shoot on a cliff … drunk driver comes drifting fast as hell. It’s 2 PM in the afternoon and ya know, it just happened. It was not a good wreck.”
The NBA star says he was rushed to the hospital where he went through a battery of tests … but was more concerned that he damaged his GF’s car, which he was driving at the time of the wreck.
“The way I am … even as how I felt, and the injuries I sustained and stuff like that, I was more worried that I messed up her car.”
“That was just how my mindset always is. I just always wanna try to make sure everyone else is okay and I didn’t wanna mess up her car.”
He added, “I survived, I’m happy I was alive. I had to do what I had to do get monitored, tested all that stuff and she was right there with me.”
Karl-Anthony went on to praise Woods as a strong woman who had made him a better man … especially with all of the turmoil he’s gone through over the past year, which included his mother and several other family members dying from COVID.
