Errol Spence Jr.’s Ferrari crash, which left the famed boxer injured, was captured on a dramatic surveillance video that shows the luxury car flip in a cloud of smoke.
The video, which you can watch later in this article, was obtained by J.D. Miles of CBS 11. “Exclusive video from a nearby security camera shows the crash that injured Championship Boxer Errol Spence Jr when he lost control of his Ferrari and it rolled multiple times ejecting him. Fortunately he survived and expected to be ok,” he wrote, posting two clips of the crash. According to Miles, the boxer suffered broken teeth in the crash. His spokesman told Heavy that Spence’s wounds are not life-threatening, which is a miracle considering the serious nature of the crash as captured on the videos.
With the second video, Miles wrote, “More exclusive security camera video showing the crash that injured Championship Boxer Errol Spence Jr when he lost control of his Ferrari and it rolled over multiple times on a Dallas street. He was ejected from the vehicle and injured but expected to recover.”
Spence is the undefeated welterweight boxing world champ. The Ferrari crash occurred in downtown Dallas, Texas on October 10, 2019. Here are the videos that Miles shared on his Twitter page:
“Errol Spence Jr., IBF/WBC unified welterweight world champion, was involved in a serious, single-car accident in Dallas early Thursday morning and is being treated at a Dallas-area hospital,” Tim Smith, Premier Boxing Champions spokesman, told Heavy in a statement. “Spence is awake and responding and his condition is listed as stable. He did not sustain any broken bones or fractures, but has some facial lacerations. He is expected to make a full recovery.”
He added: “He is currently resting with his family by his side. They want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes and are extremely grateful to the Dallas first responders who rushed to the scene to attend to Errol after the accident and the doctors who are taking care of him at the hospital.”

“Errol was in an accident, and his parents are with him at the hospital,” Smith told ESPN. “The doctors are monitoring his condition, but his injuries are not life-threatening.

His parents were at his side in the hospital, according to The Dallas Morning News.
