Houston Rockets Chandler Parsons in car accident, asked for autograph by fellow driver


On Monday evening, Chandler Parsons was on his way to the Toyota Center where his Houston Rockets were scheduled to host the San Antonio Spurs.

It was a typical game night for Parsons, that is, until he was involved in a car accident on his way to the contest.

According to Jonathan Feigen, Parsons was struck by a woman who ran a red light – then had the gusto to ask the small forward for an autograph.

A driver outside Toyota Center ran a red light and hit Parsons’ SUV near the entrance to the loading dock. Parsons said he and driver were not hurt, though it made him a few minutes late for treatment before shooting to see if he would be cleared to play.

“She said she ran a red light and it was her fault,” Parsons said. “She had a little car so it kind of messed up the front bumper of my car. She was OK. Asked me to sign her insurance card.”

Parsons didn’t go on to say if he signed the card or not, though being the good guy that he is, I’m sure he honored her rather odd request.

Thankfully nobody was injured (especially the child) and Parsons was able to partake in Houston’s victory over the Spurs.
