Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett and one passenger were hospitalized Monday after the two were involved in a rollover car accident in Sharon Township, the Ohio State Highway Patrol confirmed, according to CNN.

Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant Ray Santiago told the outlet Garrett, 26, and the passenger suffered from "non-life-threatening injuries."

The authorities rushed to the scene, which was located approximately 40 miles south of Cleveland, just before 3 p.m. after receiving a report about a crash.

"When troopers arrived on [the] scene, they discovered a gray Porsche 911 Turbo S off the right side of the roadway with rollover damage," Santiago told CNN, adding that Garrett and the passenger were transported to a local hospital where they received treatment.

Both he and the passenger were wearing seat belts during the crash, and there was no impairment from drugs or alcohol suspected, Santiago shared, per the outlet.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Cleveland Browns did not immediately return PEOPLE's requests for comment.
