Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake was involved in a car accident yesterday afternoon, totaling both cars involved, but not injuring the team's pass rushing star. Wallace Waldman, the driver of the other car, was treated at a nearby hospital for minor injuries, according to a South Florida Sun-Sentinel report.

Wake was driving his black BMW north along South Nob Hill Road in Plantation, Florida at 12:30pm yesterday. Waldman was headed south along the same road, when he attempted to turn left in front of Wake onto Torch Avenue. The police cited Wallace, 70, for violating Wake's right-of-way.

The police report, according to the Sun-Sentinel article, indicates both Wake and Wallace were wearing seatbelts, air bags were deployed, and both cars were totaled in the accident. Alcohol was not a factor.

Wake was present at the Dolphins practice today, but did not participate. He watched the early portion of the workout from the sideline, before returning to the team's facility. It was though he was receiving attention from the team's medical staff for any lingering effects of the wreck.

Wake could be held out of this Friday's preseason game at the Carolina Panthers as the coaches allow him to recuperate from the accident. Rookie Olivier Vernon would start in his place.
