Tom Brady on accident: 'I was scared out of my mind'

Tom Brady said he was "scared out of my mind" after he was involved in an auto accident Thursday morning in Boston's Back Bay.

"I'm telling you, when it happened, I didn't even know what to do, because you're just in shock," Brady said in his weekly WEEI radio appearance Monday. "I was kind of sitting there in the car, looking around, trying to get my bearings.

"And then I got out of the car and I saw a woman and I said, 'Are you okay?' And she said, 'Yeah.' And she said, 'How are you?' I said, 'I'm fine." And I was just kind of looking around, I was looking in the other car to make sure they were okay.

"The next thing, a guy says, 'Hey, do you want to call 911?' I said, 'God, that would be a good idea, wouldn't it?' So I did that. But I didn't even think about doing that. I was just thinking, 'How am I going to -- I've got to call [Patriots Coach Bill] Belichick, I'm going to be late [for practice].' And then once I got home, then it really hits you."

Brady was unhurt in the accident. A passenger in the other vehicle involved was hospitalized. The driver of the other auto ran a red light, according to eyewitnesses.
