Winston cited for careless driving after ‘minor collision’

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v New Orleans Saints

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has been cited for careless driving after being involved in a minor collision last week.

Florida Highway Patrol report indicates Winston failed to reduce speed in time as traffic backed up on Veterans Expressway and could not avoid rear-ending a car with his Ford F250. The accident occurred on Feb. 13 at approximately 5:05 p.m., per the report.


Winston, the report notes, “operated the vehicle in a careless or negligent manner,” but did not appear to be distracted.

Damages were estimated to be approximately $2,000 each for both vehicles.

No injuries were reported and alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in the collision.
