The Austin-American Statesman’s Suzanne Haliburton reports University Of Texas LB Sergio Kindle suffered a concussion last Wednesday after driving into a West Campus apartment building.

Brian Roark, Kindle™s lawyer, said the wreck happened at 1:50 a.m. Wednesday. He said Kindle likely was text messaging and lost control of his car. He said the wreck caused about $8,700 of damage to the exterior wall of the building, according to the damage estimate provided by the apartment™s management company.

No one other than Kindle was hurt.

Kindle pushed his car onto the street, then went home, Roark said.

œHe knew he was hurt at the time and that he needed to go home and go to bed, Roark said.

Roark said Kindle contacted the apartment management as soon as he woke up Wednesday morning. He also was treated for the concussion later that day.

Kindle’s not merely an All-Big 12 linebacker, he’s pretty good at avoiding a breathalyzer.  I’m no Dr. Conrad Murray, but it should be pointed out on Kindle’s behalf there’s no reason to avoid a good night’s sleep, even if you’ve been concussed.
