A dreadful story has come out of Columbus, Ohio as a former Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers, and St Louis Rams running back is reportedly in critical condition after being involved in an accident.

According to Pro Football Talk, Isaiah Pead is in critical condition after being involved in a car accident in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio on Saturday morning.

A report by NBC states that the accident happened 'at about 2:32am' this morning and the 26-year-old 'was driving his 2011 Cadillac CTS eastbound on I-670 near E. 5th Avenue, when he lost control of the vehicle, and drove off the right side of the roadway.'

The car then struck a guardrail and went airborne and struck several trees on the way down an embankment before coming to a stop almost 100 feet away from the road. The police on the scene apparently stated that the running back wasn't wearing his seatbelt.

In his playing career so far, Pead has played 30 games, running for 100 yards on 27 carries, and he has also tallied 100 yards from 15 receptions. He last played in the league in week four earlier this season for the Dolphins where he ran for 22 yards off eight carries.

He is yet to score a touchdown since being drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft by the Rams.

Pead only worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs last week, so hopefully he is able to make a recovery and get back on the field soon.
