Padilla breaks collarbone

Phillies' pitcher Vicente Padilla was injured in a one car crash in his homeland of Nicaragua. Padilla broke his collarbone and a finger on his right (pitching) hand.

The early story is that the driver of the car Padilla was in fell asleep behind the wheel. The car careened off the highway and rolled, killing the driver.

Padilla was treated for his injuries and released. No word on the seriousness of the injuries or how long he will be out, but from the sound of it, he is lucky to be alive.

I'll add more as I hear it.
