Flyers forward Jakub Voracek uninjured after totaling Ferrari (photos)


Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek, back home in his native Czech Republic for the off-season, amazingly was able to walk away from a horrific-looking accident in which he totaled his Ferrari.

The accident occurred on Wednesday morning near his hometown of Kladn and given the state of his Ferrari, the fact he came away unscathed is borderline stupefying.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren confirmed Voracek was no worse for wear, via a statement that read, “I spoke with Jake this morning. He was involved in a car accident in the Czech Republic. Although his car did suffer damage, there were no injuries. Jake is fine.”

How mind-blowing is it that Voracek suffered no injuries in the wreck? Check out additional photos of his Ferrari documenting the aftermath:

That’s a relief, both for Voracek and Flyers management, as he had a phenomenal year for the team during the abbreviated, lockout-shortened season, leading the team with 22 goals and totaling 46 points in 48 games.
