Former Chargers Linebacker Junior Seau Drives Vehicle off Cliff

Early Monday morning, former San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau drove his SUV off of a cliff near his home in San Diego. Police reports indicate that the car accident was caused by Seau falling asleep behind the wheel. He did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident.

Seau was driving a 2004 Cadillac Escalade near Carlsbad State Beach. Witnesses said the SUV suddenly accelerated and drove off the road down a 30-foot cliff. Emergency crews rescued Seau, who was still inside the crumpled vehicle when they arrived at the scene. Seau suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He was released Tuesday morning.

The car accident occurred about five hours after Seau was released from jail after being arrested on domestic violence charges.

Seau retired last season from the New England Patriots. He spent the bulk of his career playing for the Chargers, where he distinguished himself as one of the premier defensive players of his era.
