EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State football players William Gholston and Lawrence Thomas suffered minor injuries in a freeway crash.

The school said in a statement Thursday the two defensive players were “shaken” after the accident Wednesday afternoon.

The Detroit Free Press reports another vehicle crossed into the path of the sport utility vehicle being driven by Gholston in Livingston County, which sits between East Lansing and the players’ hometown of Detroit.

Michigan State spokesman John Lewandowski says Gholston and Thomas were heading home to Detroit after finals when the crash happened on Interstate 96.

Michigan State Police Trooper Greg Galarneau says no tickets or citations were issued, and “nobody went to the hospital.”

Gholston is a junior defensive end, and Thomas is a redshirt freshman linebacker.
