Former WCW star Buff Bagwell is in intensive care after he was involved in a serious car accident.

The wrestler, real name Marcus Bagwell, was driving in Georgia on Monday when he lost control of his Jeep, which flipped on the road and left him with several broken bones in his neck and face, including a snapped jaw.

He was taken to nearby WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where he remains under doctors' watch in an intensive care ward, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Bagwell made his name in wrestling after he became five-time World Tag Team champion in the 1990s. He broke his neck during a match in 1998, but made a full recovery.
