Colts punter Pat McAfee narrowly avoided a violent crash on the Indianapolis west side Wednesday morning.

Indianapolis Metro Police officers were in pursuit of a suspect vehicle spotted at 38th St. and Lafayette Rd. They pursued the Ford Explorer all the way to Brownsburg, where the chase ended in a crash that involved at least two other vehicles.

The Colts player was on 56th when he saw the suspect vehicle.

"My light turned green and as I was pulling out, I looked back and there was this SUV flying by me and he almost T-boned me, basically, so I swerved into the middle and then there was just a caravan of cops like you see on TV," said McAfee, who was not injured.

At least two others were injured in the crash. They were taken to local hospitals for treatment.
