49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo revealed he "almost died" on the drive to meet the 49ers' team plane at the airport.
Garoppolo, then with the Patriots, had just gotten word in October 2017 that he'd been traded to the 49ers. He rushed to pack a bag for the airport.
On the way, the limo was merging onto I-95 in Massachusetts when another car skidded off an exit ramp, across the highway median and into the path of his vehicle. The driver had to swerve into a ditch to avoid a brutal wreck.
Had Jimmy's limo hit it, the ending could have been much different.
We are so glad the story ended as it did!
