Jose Reyes and the Mets trainer were in a car accident on the Triboro Bridge today. Reyes was not injured. Reyes and Ray Ramirez were hit from behind by a fire truck.

Are we living in the Twilight Zone or something?

Injured shortstop Jose Reyes and Mets trainer Ray Ramirez were rear-ended by a firetruck on the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge sometime Monday while driving to the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan for a check-up visit, Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said. No one was injured in the accident, Horowitz said.
The Mets said nothing about the accident until starting pitcher Tim Redding unknowingly spilled the beans after Monday’s 6-4 win over St. Louis.

“I got here about 10 after 4 and a lot of things were going on,” Redding said. “Apparently a lot of things were going on all over the city. Our shortstop and our trainer, who’s been working his butt off to keep us on the field, got into an accident. Carlos was getting an MRI and being placed on the DL. And people were being moved, brought up and sent all over the place. So it was a whirlwind day.”

Okay, this is not funny anymore… If I find out they were out looking for good Cuban food, I’ll be pissed!!!

Seriously though, thank God he’s okay and that nobody was hurt…
