HIGHLAND HEIGHTS (FOX19) - Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones says he "almost got killed" when power lines came down onto Interstate 275 in Northern Kentucky, Thursday, according to his Instagram account.
"I"m driving. These power lies just fall down out of nowhere, bro, in the middle of the highway. Almost got killed," Jones said in a video. "I'm just glad I'm OK. That's all I"m happy about."
He showed close-up video of the downed lines and a smoking or steaming black SUV with hood damage.
The incident shut down I-275 before the evening commute.
Backups ensued with the closure stretching from I-471 to U.S. 52 near Northern Kentucky University's campus.
