The only involvement Henderson has in this story is being at the wrong place at the wrong time. The vehicle eluded officers and sped away, CBS4 Denver said.

Insane enough, it was Henderson's Jeep, which was hit so hard it flipped, was the vehicle that ended the chase. The accident closed lanes of traffic on Jordan Road, near a major freeway, for hours. "He was taken to the hospital as a precaution and is at the team's facility preparing to participate in OTAs next week".

Two people in the stolen vehicle were among the injured, said Officer Sherry Corcoran of the Parker Police Department.

Despite the ordeal, Henderson said he escaped with "only minor injuries and a few scrapes and bruises", and he was transported to a hospital following the crash.


Henderson was an accidental hero as his Jeep, which was struck with such force it flipped over on its top, helped stop the chase. The timing of the situation is not good, but at least he wasn't seriously injured. Broncos second-year running back De'Angelo Henderson is recovering from injuries he sustained when the driver of a stolen vehicle plowed into his Jeep.

Selected by Denver in the sixth round of last year's draft out of Coastal Carolina, Henderson was used sparingly as a rookie.

Henderson last season appeared in five games, rushing seven times for 13 yards. Henderson is competing with Devontae Booker and Royce Freeman for carries in the Broncos backfield.
