Former Auburn quarterback and current Panthers signal-caller Cam Newton has been injured in car wreck in uptown Charlotte on Tuesday afternoon, according to multiple media reports.

First reported by the Charlotte Observer, another car was involved in the accident. Rescuers closed the street.

Newton, whose car overturned, was loaded onto a stretcher and is being taken to the hospital.

The severity of Newton’s injury is unknown at this time.

The crash reportedly occurred just blocks from the Panthers’ practice facility. Troy Machir of Sporting News reports Newton’s vehicle flipped upwards of three times, citing witnesses at the scene.

Charlotte police confirmed Newton was driving the vehicle, and that he communicated with first responders, according to Charlotte Observer photographer Jonathan Jones.

Jones confirmed on ESPN’s SportsCenter this afternoon that the Panthers have an off day today. Carolina hosts Tampa Bay on Sunday.

WBTV, CBS’ Charlotte affiliate, tweeted this photo of Newton being loaded into the ambulance:

Newton was conscious following the wreck. WBTV’s Steve Crump is reporting Charlotte Mecklenburg Police told him Newton did not suffer any injuries, and did not want to be taken to the hospital, but was taken as a precautionary measure.
