Eagles TE Brent Celek was the passenger in a car driven and crashed by a drunk driver. There were no injuries in the crash.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek was the passenger in a car driven by a drunk driver that crashed early Thursday morning, according to Pennsylvania State Police in a report on SI.com.

There were no injuries in the crash, which occurred around 2:30 AM Thursday morning near the Eagle's stadium, located in South Philadelphia.

The police have indicated that the driver was operating the vehicle too fast and spun out before crashing into a concrete barrier off of a highway ramp. The driver subsequently took and failed field sobriety tests, and was arrested on DUI charges.

Celek finished his fifth season for Philadelphia in 2011, catching 62 passes for 811 yards and 5 scores. Originally a 2007 fifth round pick out of the University of Cincinnati, Celek has played his entire professional career with the Eagles.

He turned 27 on Wednesday.
