Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek luckily escaped injury after being involved in a nasty car accident in the Czech Republic.
 
Pictures published online show the Ferrari -- which is reportedly Voracek's -- with the front end completely totalled. A Twitter fan page out of the Czech Republic states the damage to the vehicle runs as high as $143,000.
 
“I spoke with Jake this morning," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said in a statement Wednesday. "He was involved in a car accident in the Czech Republic. Although his car did suffer damage, there were no injuries. Jake is fine."

In a text to a reporter in the United States, Voracek said, “All good. No injuries. That’s good! Can’t talk now. Very busy haha.”

“(Voracek) failed to comply with safe distance from the vehicle ahead,” Kladno police spokeswoman Michaela Novakova told Sport.cz.

In 48 games, the right winger scored 22 goals and added 24 assists during the 2012-13 lockout-shortened season.
