The Nevada Highway Patrol said the accident happened around 2 p.m. on U.S. 395.

The limo, owned by Bell Limousine of Reno, was heading north when it left the four-lane highway, crashed through a wire fence, over a culvert and into a pasture, Trooper Mike Edgell said.

''Right now he's in a lot of pain,'' Edgell said later Monday.

McMahon reportedly sustained a broken foot in the crash, according to NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk.

A woman traveling with McMahon also was injured and being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The patrol identified her as Lori Navon, 45, of Scottsdale, Ariz.

The driver, Robert McCoy, 40, of Sparks, also was injured and taken to the Renown Regional Medical Center.

Alcohol was not involved and the cause of the accident was under investigation, Edgell said.

McMahon, 51, played 15 seasons in the NFL and helped the Chicago Bears win the Super Bowl in 1986.

He was at Lake Tahoe over the weekend, where he competed in the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

McMahon and Navon were on their way to Reno-Tahoe International Airport when the accident happened, Edgell said.
