Police responded to a single vehicle rollover crash around 12:20 a.m. on Feb. 16.
Police found the driver of the car, Thomas, in addition to an adult male and adult female passenger with him in the car.

The speed limit in the area was 30 mph.

All three were transported to a nearby hospital and treated for injuries.

Thomas and the male passenger suffered minor injuries, while the female passenger sustained possible serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

Thomas was officially released by the Texans just a few days before the crash.

He suffered a season-ending torn Achilles in December.
