Still, the accident was a topic that couldn't be avoided with reporters. Newton explained how it occurred and spoke candidly about how lucky he felt to escape the situation with relatively minor injuries.
"I'm looking at this truck and thinking someone's supposed to be dead," Newton said. "I couldn't stop smiling."
"I'm on somebody's fantasy team, and I think it's the man upstairs."
"As far as when I'm coming back, who cares?" Newton said. "That's not something that I'm worried about right now. I'm just thankful to have breath in my lungs so I can breathe again."
