Michigan State football players William Gholston and Lawrence Thomas suffered only minor injuries in a car accident Wednesday, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Gholston, a junior defensive end, and Thomas, a redshirt freshman linebacker, were in a rollover crash on Eastbound I-96 at about 3:40 p.m.

The Free Press quotes from Thomas' Facebook page:

"God is awesome," Thomas wrote. "Me and @WillGholston was on the road on our way back home for a little break from school and got into a serious car crash. These 2 car were swerving out of control but one of the cars swerved in front of us in the middle lane. As soon as we hit the car, will flipped in the air 3-4 times and landed in a ditch on the side of the road. Many people was telling us we are so glad we walked away from that with any broken bones. We just have a few cuts, bruises, and soreness. But like I said, God is Good!!!"

The driver of the other vehicle, a woman from East Lansing, was not seriously injured. All three people were reportedly wearing seatbelts.
