Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek was in a car accident near his home in Kladno, Czech Republic, on Wednesday morning, leaving his Ferrari totaled.

Fortunately for Voracek, he was OK. The Flyers confirmed that on Wednesday.

"I spoke with Jake this morning," GM Paul Holmgren said. "He was involved in a car accident in the Czech Republic. Although his car did suffer damage, there were no injuries. Jake is fine."

Thank goodness because looking at his car after the crash, it's a wonder he wasn't seriously injured. That looks like one nasty front-end collision he was in. Here are some details you can take away from a Sport.cz article as translated by Google (as always a very rough translation but you can get the understanding from it).

And before you assume there was alcohol involved, don't.

Voracek had a monster season for the Flyers, leading the team in goals with 22 and finishing with 46 points in 48 games. It was his first season on a new four-year contract that carries a $4.25 million cap hit for Philadelphia.
