Jaromir Jagr managed to get away without any major injuries after getting in a car accident with a tramway in Czechia.

Jagr, 50, said he was shaken by the crash but came away mostly unscathed. Jagr took responsibility for the incident while driving his Kia EV6.

“Dear fans, but everyone else. I would just like to tell you briefly what happened today when I was involved in the accident. It was my fault. On Plzeňská, I tried to cross from one direction to another. I checked the other side and drove into it at the right time," Jagr wrote in Czech on Instagram via Google Translate.

An investigation into the incident is underway. The crash happened a day after Jagr announced he would return for another season with the Kladno team he owns in the top Czechia league.
