News

Foxboro, Mass (WPRI) – New England Patriots linebacker Harvey Langi was released from the hospital following a serious crash Friday night, the Boston Herald reports.

Both Langi and his wife Cassie were hospitalized following the crash. She thanked everyone for their support in a tweet Sunday that confirmed she was the passenger in Langi’s car.

Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick addressed the crash after Sunday’s game.

“First of all, I just wanted to, on behalf of the team, express the thoughts and prayers that are with Harvey and Cassidy Langi for the accident that happened over the weekend,” Belichick said. “We pray that they’re being looked over and that they’re doing better. It sounds like they are, but that was a very unfortunate situation, and one I think shook everybody in the organization.”

The three car accident happened around 9:30 Friday night near the intersections of Fisher and Commercial Streets off of Route 140.

Crews had to use the jaws of life to free one of the five victims.

“We are aware of the traffic accident involving Harvey Langi and a passenger last night in Foxborough. The two were stopped at a traffic light when they were rear ended by another vehicle,” the team said in a statement Friday night.

“They were both transported to a local hospital with injuries and are receiving medical attention. Our thoughts are with Harvey, the Langi family and those who sustained injuries in last nights accident.”

Langi was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Jets with a back injury.

According to the Patriots website, Langi was signed by the team as a rookie free agent on May 5th.
