All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Brown almost got hit by a car during a charity bicycle ride.
The star Philadelphia Eagles wideout was documenting his participation in the team’s annual Autism Challenge race via Instagram Live.
Shortly after he looked at the camera and started talking to his followers, his phone suddenly flew from his hands, and a distorted sound was audible.
“Turn this camera around … Bro ain’t even peddling bruh,” Brown could be heard saying seconds before the video ended.
About 30 minutes after the scare, Brown took to Twitter to let everyone know he was OK.
“I’m fine everyone lol. Someone ran the stop sign. I didn’t fall off my bike, I just dropped my phone and got out of the way . Stay safe everyone,” Brown wrote.
