Chicago Bears linebacker Roquan Smith was uninjured after he crashed his Mercedes into a pole near Halas Hall in Lake Forest Tuesday morning, police said.

The Lake Forest Police Department and Lake Forest Fire Department responded around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday to Route 60 and Field Drive for a report of a single-vehicle crash.

Lake Forest Deputy Police Chief Rob Copeland said that Smith’s white Mercedes-Benz coupe struck a pole, causing heavy damage to the front passenger side of the vehicle. The crash is believed to have been caused by icy road conditions.

Smith was uninjured and police did not issue any citations, Copeland said. Smith was given a ride nearby to Halas Hall, the Bears’ headquarters.

Smith was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the 2018 NFL draft after playing football for the University of Georgia.
