BOSTON — Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz reportedly is unhurt after a minor car accident on his way to Fenway Park.

WBZ-TV in Boston reports Ortiz was involved in the multi-car accident on Boylston Street on Friday afternoon on his way to prepare for a game with the Cleveland Indians.

Ortiz tells the station: “I lost a little control coming out of the gas station and I hit a car, but I’m fine. Everybody is fine.”

He said “we’re going to try to be fine” for Friday night’s game.

Boston police said they didn’t immediately have details but were investigating an accident at the location.

Ortiz is hitting .352 with 7 home runs and 23 RBI this season for the last-place Red Sox. printed on April 30, 2017
