Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was involved in a minor car accident on his way to Fenway Park earlier today.

WBZ first reported Ortiz's accident, which was on Boylston Street. No one was injured.

"I lost a little control coming out of the gas station and I hit a car, but Im fine. Everybody is fine," Ortiz said.

Two witnesses at the scene told WBZ that it appeared Ortiz was speeding.

What happened was he was speeding, tried to slam on his brakes and spun out of control, hit a car and then turned around," Tyler Bishop said.

I think everybody is going to make mistakes, said Kayley Bishop. He went a little too fast and hes not going to do it again."

Ortiz is today's lineup against the Cleveland Indians.
