Boston Red Sox Minor Leaguer Critically Injured In Car Crash
According to FOX4, Boston Red Sox minor league pitcher Kevin Steen was critically injured in a car crash on Wednesday night near Fort Myers just before midnight.
A Dodge car was headed eastbound on Lee Boulevard when the driver veered off the road to the right, then veered left and crossed the median. The car went airborne before crashing into the front of a westbound SUV driven by Steen, which then caught on fire.
The driver of the other car passed away and Steen was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in critical condition. Steen is just 20 years old and was a ninth-round pick in the 2014 draft. The right-hander has pitched for the short-season, Single-A Lowell Spinners each of the last two seasons. Last year he went 3-5 with a 5.37 ERA.
