Johnny Manziel Reportedly Survives Car Crash Involving his Nissan GT-R
On Wednesday, June 22nd, TMZ Sports reported that controversial ex-football star Johnny Manziel was involved in a serious car crash in Dallas, Texas.
TMZ confirmed the 2015 Nissan GT-R involved in the incident was indeed registered to Manziel and it’s the same vehicle he was driving last year during an alleged domestic dispute with his ex-girlfriend in Ohio.
In the pictures that TMZ published, you can see that the side of Manziel’s white coupe suffered major damage in what appeared to be a T-bone type of accident. Manziel’s representative, Denise Michaels, told TMZ that the other driver was at fault. She also said that after Manziel’s car was struck, the other car simply drove away.
Furthermore, the crash was severe enough that the driver’s airbag actually deployed as a result of the collision. The starting MSRP of a 2015 Nissan GT-R is north of $100,000.

There was no update given regarding Manziel’s physical condition. Cops told TMZ there was no record of any accident involving the former Cleveland Brown’s quarterback. However, Manziel’s rep said that he “reported it to police.”
This isn’t the first automotive controversy Manziel has experienced so far in 2016. Back in April, Manziel was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles that saw a Mercedes S550—that he rented–crash into a pole on the Sunset Strip. Manziel informed police that he was a passenger during the time of that accident, but he reportedly has yet to pay the $90,000 in damages owed to the vehicle’s owner.
TMZ has also reported that Manziel currently is rumored to be staying at an apartment complex in Dallas. The damaged Nissan GT-R appeared there Monday night.

Sam is also a Dayton, Ohio native and doesn’t seem to mind that distinction as much anymore. His first car was a 1996 Ford Taurus he could barely fit in. Like many young folks, he seemed more concerned about the radio in his first car than actually doing the work to maintain an automobile, so sadly it’s no longer with us. See more articles by Samuel.
