Brannen Greene’s should consider himself lucky after what happened to him in New York.
The former Kansas Jayhawks player survived a car accident with only minor injuries.
“Brannen was trapped inside a car as a (ride-sharing service) passenger following an accident at Major Deegan Expressway, Bronx, N.Y., and 233rd St., after arriving from Los Angeles where he had NBA team workouts. The car was struck from behind with so much force it immediately went airborne, came down on a guardrail (with Brannen in back seat), went airborne again and caught fire. It exploded no more than five seconds after he escaped through an opening in a shattered window, his father Jeffery said.”
Brannen lost his phone, computer, and luggage in the accident. His driver wasn’t hurt either.
Brannen finished his junior season with 5.4 ppg, 2.1 rpg and is mostly known for his controversial dunk at the end of the Kansas-Kansas State game.
