Broncos-Henderson Accident, 1st Ld-Writethru,293

The only involvement Henderson has in this story is being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Officers attempted to pull a vehicle over that had been reported stolen at around 8:20 p.m Saturday night, and the driver fled from officers before eventually crashing.

Insane enough, it was Henderson's Jeep, which was hit so hard it flipped, was the vehicle that ended the chase. Because of that, the story was notable in Denver long before anyone realized one of the victims was a Broncos player.

"We're thankful that Broncos RB De'Angelo Henderson sustained only minor injuries as one of several accident victims when a vehicle collided with his Jeep Saturday", the statement read.

Patrick Smyth, the Broncos' executive vice president of public and community relations, expressed relief Monday that Henderson was not seriously injured. All had been released by Sunday.

The Academy Award-winning filmmaker will also have the third season of the animated kids program Trollhunters released on May 25. Guillermo will serve as executive producer on the series as well as a writer and director on select episodes.

"For the most part my body in general is sore", Henderson told 9News, claiming that he got out of his vehicle by unbuckling himself and hitting the jammed door with his shoulder while laying on the roof.

While football might seem trivial given what happened, the next few months are hugely important for Henderson's career.

"At the last second I saw a truck plow into my passenger side", said the 25-year-old back, a sixth-round pick last year out of Coastal Carolina. Denver drafted running back Royce Freeman in the third round last month, and Henderson will be battling for a job through preseason. Henderson was stuck behind veterans on the depth chart when the season started and only got seven regular-season carries, though he did add a 29-yard touchdown reception in the season finale. He said Monday he is now rehabbing his injuries in order to participate in next week's organized team activities. The Broncos running back wound up upside-down in his auto, which was flipped and wrecked by another driver who was being pursued by police.

Police were pursuing a suspect named Rainbow Sunset Espinoza, 36, at the time of the crash.
