Police said Ludgero Rodrigues was cited based on witness statements, despite his claim that he had the green light as he drove into the intersection where his vehicle collided with Brady’s.
One man riding in the back of the Mercury Villager minivan was hospitalized after the crash in Boston’s Back Bay section, which was reported at about 6:34 a.m. today. Brady, who was driving an Audi sedan, appeared shaken after the accident, witnesses said, but he participated in a walk-through and practice later in the day as the team prepared for its season opener Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Patriots said in an official tweet and on their Facebook page today that Brady “reports that he’s OK.”
Police said in a statement that the driver of an Audi S8 said he was driving on Gloucester Street through the intersection towards Commonwealth when the minivan “crossed into his path” from Commonealth. The driver, who was not named in the statement but has been identified by law enforcement officials as Brady, said that he, rather than Rodrigues, had the green light.
