On a seemingly ordinary Tuesday morning, Leonard Fournette found himself at the center of an unexpected highway pyrotechnic show. The ex-Bucs running back was just cruisin’ north on I-275, probably thinking about his next career move or what to have for lunch, when his 2021 Dodge Durango decided to pull a stunt straight out of a Michael Bay movie. The vehicle, due to a mechanical issue, went up in flames near the Fowler Avenue overpass.
Does anyone else wonder if Fournette saw this as a metaphor for his recent career twist? 🤔
Sgt. Steve Gaskins of the Florida Highway Patrol reported that Fournette, age 28 and currently a free agent, managed to bring his flaming beast to a controlled stop on the inside shoulder. Exit Fournette, unscathed and probably a bit shaken. Way to go, Fournette! When life gives you flames, you make… an Instagram post?
Speaking of Instagram, Fournette posted a video of his charred Durango on the social platform, proving he knows how to find the silver lining in a cloud of smoke.📱🔥 His caption? “Man it was one of those days today, but I would like to thank God, my car caught on fire while I was driving, But (I am) still blessed.” Well, that’s one way to put a positive spin on things!
Meanwhile, Tampa Fire Rescue arrived at the scene to deal with the remaining drama. According to them, flames were shooting out from the engine compartment like a bad Fast and Furious sequel. Traffic on I-275 took a timeout as everyone waited for the fire to be tackled. 🚒🔥
Fournette, the star of 43 regular-season games, has evolved from a turbulent 2020 season to a folk hero in playoffs, scoring a touchdown in Super Bowl 55. Let’s hope his future career isn’t as fiery as his car incident!
Now, who do you think has had the worst week: Fournette or the Durango? 🏈🚗 And more importantly, how will this literal road bump impact his next career move?
