Rodriguez and his family are still recovering from the crash. According to ESPN, the 31-year-old Rodriguez, his wife, Giselle, and their two children were T-boned by a police car, but Deadspin reported Rodriguez’s black Suburban T-boned the police car after the driver lost control of the vehicle.

The police cruiser caught on fire after the crash, and the unidentified driver died at the scene of the crash. A video of the police car was reportedly captured by TJ Williams.

Rodriguez—who signed a two-year deal with the Braves this offseason—was treated for minor injuries. His wife in children suffered more serious injuries, but all three are in stable condition.

Rodriguez played for the Pittsburgh Pirates before joining the Braves.
