The mystery surrounding the single-vehicle crash that has the future of New York Giants rookie safety Chad Jones in questions remains just that, a mystery.
Police have closed an investigation into the incident, according to a report in the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Jones was transported from New Orleans to New York where he will rehabilitate serious injuries to his left leg and ankle.
Two passengers traveling in Jones’ 2010 Range Rover escaped the accident without serious injuries. They told police that they were asleep at the time of the wreck, shortly after 6 a.m. Robert Newman and Michael Mansion told police no one in the party consumed any alcohol prior to the wreck. Jones was not administered a blood alcohol test. Per the report, officer Bianca Delrish did not smell alcohol at the scene.
Jones said he didn’t remember what happened before he hit a light pole on North Carrolton. The speed limit is 35 mph and there were no skid marks at the scene where his vehicle, which did not have a license plate, was totaled. It’s impossible to determine how fast Jones was traveling at the time of the accident. He was charged with careless operation of a vehicle.
The Giants did not provide an update on Jones’ medical status.
