DALLAS — Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was taken to a local hospital after a car accident Wednesday night, a person with knowledge of the incident confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly disclose the information.
The accident was “minor,” the person said, adding that the hospital visit was a “precautionary measure.”
Jones was released and resting at home before 11 p.m. local time, The Dallas Morning News reported.
WFAA-TV, Dallas’ ABC station, reported that Jones’ injuries “aren’t serious” after an accident that occurred around 8:08 p.m. on a stormy Dallas night.
Jones, who is 79 years old, also serves as general manager and led the team’s draft efforts last weekend from club headquarters at The Star.
