Scary report today out of Jackson Township. According to a report from The Canton Repository, Devin Smith was involved in a serious car crash this past Sunday. It resulted in Smith flipping his car and crashing into a utility pole.

From the report:

Devin M. Smith, 22, was driving southbound on Wales Avenue NW around 8:30 a.m. when he left the road and rolled his vehicle, according to the traffic accident report from the police department.

He will be cited in the accident for failure to control, police said.

The traffic report indicates alcohol was suspected in the crash. Smith’s blood was tested and the results showed that he was under the legal limit, according Chief Mark Brink. The accident remains under investigation.

Smith caught 44 balls for 660 yards in the 2013 campaign for Ohio State. An elder statesmen of sorts, Smith was expected to provide some leadership for a largely unproven receiving corps heading into the 2014 season.

This reports puts these Monday tweets from in a new light:

Good to see Ohio State's electric deep threat is still with us.
