Karl-Anthony Towns shares details of frightening car accident
Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns is presenting a scary account of the car accident that left him with a concussion.
Towns said his stopped vehicle was rear-ended by a semi traveling an estimated 35-45 MPH, and he said he’d give himself a five percent chance of surviving the accident.
Karl-Anthony Towns says he’s “blessed to be alive and talking right now.” Towns says there was a 5 percent chance he would survive the crash he was involved in last Thursday.

Obviously, Towns is estimating on his odds here, but given the accident was enough to land him in the concussion protocol, it was definitely quite significant. In the end, he will only miss two games, and is slated to return Monday night.
