Jakub Voracek got really, really lucky on Wednesday in the Czech Republic. Take one look at what his car looks like, and you’ll know he’s fortunate to even be alive, let alone fine after a nasty car crash. The Flyers forward wrecked his Ferrari in a one-car crash in his native country Wednesday, but according to reports, the winger is OK after the accident. Voracek is “all good,” according to CSNPhilly.com. The accident, first reported by Sport.cz, occurred when Voracek crashed his Ferrari into a tree before hitting a utility pole as well. According to the report (via CSNPhilly.com), Voracek tried to pass a trash truck unsuccessfully, hitting the truck before the tree and the pole. “I spoke with Jake this morning,” Philly general manager Paul Holmgren said in a statement. “He was involved in a car accident in the Czech Republic. Although his car did suffer damage, there were no injuries. Jake is fine.” The car reportedly suffered $150,000 in damage, and Voracek was fined for speeding. Given the circumstances and the grisly photos, Voracek is extremely lucky to just walk away with a fine and a wrecked ride. See a police photo of the car below, and click here to see even more photos of the scene.
