Former NFL running back Isaiah Pead is in critical condition after being involved in an auto accident early Saturday morning in Columbus, Ohio.

Pead, 26, underwent surgery and remains in critical condition.

Pead lost control of his Cadillac CTS at approximately 2:32 a.m. Saturday morning and drove off the side of Interstate 670, the Columbus Division of Police told NBC4.

According to NBC4, Pead’s car went through a guardrail and down an embankment, striking several trees along the way. Pead was ejected from the vehicle.

A passenger, Wesley Richardson, 27, was in stable condition.

Pead appeared in three games this season for the Miami Dolphins, with 22 yards on eight carries. He also had one reception for 6 yards.

A second-round pick of the St. Louis Rams in the 2012 draft, Pead has played in 30 career games, rushing for 100 yards on 27 carries and catching 15 passes for 100 yards.

Pead recently worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs after being waived by the Dolphins last month. He spent his first four years in the NFL with the Rams from 2012 to 2015.
