Former Duke quarterback Anthony Boone is in a Charlotte, N.C. hospital following a Sunday car accident involving Carolina Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson.

The two drivers were traveling in opposite directions near Weddington, N.C., when Thompson crossed the center line on Potter Road as both were rounding a bend. Each driver attempted to swerve, but instead their vehicles collided head-on, according to Raleigh television station WTVD.

Thompson was not injured, but Boone was taken to the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening. Thompson was cited for driving left of center, according to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, via Black and Blue Review. While alcohol was involved, it was not a factor as Thompson was below the legal limit.  

"Shaq informed us he was involved in a traffic accident and we are in the process of gathering mor

e information," a Panthers spokesman told Black and Blue Review. 

Thompson, 22, and Boone, 24, do not know each other. Thompson, Carolina's first-round pick in 2015, spent Tuesday at a charity event run by Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert.
