Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was issued a citation for causing a multi-car accident before Friday night’s game against the Indians.
Ortiz was on his way to Fenway Park when he got into the accident near the corner of Boylston Street and Ipswich Street.
According to police, the other driver involved in the crash was stopped at the red light when Ortiz’s car spun out of a gas station and struck the front driver’s side of the car.
“I lost a little control coming out of the gas station and I hit a car, but I’m fine,” Ortiz said shortly after the accident. “Everybody is fine.”
Ortiz was ticketed for an improperly made left turn.
No one was hurt in the crash, and Ortiz played later that night as the DH. He went 1-3 with a walk and a run scored, but left the game in the 7th inning with a heel injury. He apparently suffered the injury in the 5th inning trying to beat out an infield single.
