Police say Tom Brady tried to avoid collision

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady swerved to try to avoid a collision with a minivan early Thursday morning, according to

In the police report, Brady said "the traffic light was green. As he entered the intersection the minivan crossed into his path from Commonwealth Ave., at which time he attempted to swerve, but was unable to. His vehicle struck the passenger side of the minivan.''

Ludgero Rodriques, the 21-year-old driver of the minivan, said he had the right of way, but an eyewitness told police Brady had the green light. Rodrigues, who has been cited numerous times for violations, was cited for running a red light.

Brady and Rodrigues were unhurt; however, Rodrigues' father was injured and was to undergo back surgery today.
