Kentucky Derby trainer Romans hurt in post-race car accident
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Kentucky Derby trainer Dale Romans says he's resting at home with some bruised ribs after being involved in a car accident after Saturday's race.
Romans tells the Louisville Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1T5WyiA) that he was driving his friends to a Veterans of Foreign Wars post after Saturday's race when his vehicle was involved in a collision with a sport-utility vehicle at an intersection.
Louisville police said no report on the accident was immediately available. Romans said he and four passengers in his vehicle went to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. There was no immediate word on the other driver.
The Louisville native says he plans to take a few days off.
''We're all lucky because the car's crushed,'' he added.
Romans is the trainer of Brody's Cause, the seventh-place finisher Saturday.
