DENVER — Former Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas suffered minor injuries after the car he was driving rolled over in downtown Denver overnight.

Denver police responded to the single-vehicle crash at around 12:20 a.m. Saturday near the intersection of Auraria Parkway and 12th St.

Two men – one of them Thomas – and a woman were inside the vehicle and were taken to a hospital for treatment.

A preliminary investigation into the crash indicated Thomas was driving on Auraria Parkway near 12th when he lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll and come to a stop at the grassy median near Speer Blvd., police said in a news release.

Thomas and the other male passenger suffered minor injuries and are expected to be treated and released. The woman in the vehicle sustained possible serious injuries but they appear to be non-life-threatening, police said.

Investigators said neither alcohol nor drugs appear to be a factor in the crash, but they are continuing to investigate.

The five-time Pro Bowler remains a free agent after he was traded to the Houston Texans last year. The Texans released Thomas earlier this week.
