Broncos’ Emmanuel Sanders, other driver cited for careless driving in crash

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders was in a crash Tuesday morning with another woman while he was heading to practice, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said.

The accident happened just before 8 a.m. on South Chambers Road near East Main Street in Parker, the sheriff’s office said.

A sheriff’s office spokesman said Sanders was driving where he wasn’t supposed to be and trying to pass traffic.

The spokesman said the other driver, an 18-year-old female, was trying to do the same when she hit Sanders’ SUV.

Investigators said they cited both drivers for careless driving.

Sanders complained about a headache and the other driver said she had a hand injury. Neither was transported for further medical treatment.
