The Dallas Police Department is investigating the accident. It remains unclear whether Jones was driving, or whether multiple vehicles were involved in the incident. A Dallas police spokesperson said the department will not name individuals involved in accidents unless there is a fatality.
The accident reportedly happened around 8:10 p.m. near Wolf Street and Harry Hines Boulevard in the Uptown neighborhood of Dallas, just a short drive from Jones’ home in Highland Park.

Jones has been as feisty as ever lately, promising at the NFL owners’ meetings in Florida that “Reckless Jerrywould still be active and taking risks with his team’s dealings. At a pre-draft press conference, when asked why cornerback Kelvin Joseph’s legal troubles wouldn’t affect Dallas’ philosophy, he snapped: “Just because I said so”. NFL Draft Jones “proved” the strategy behind his team’s rosters by holding up and displaying a ranking of players that most teams keep wildly private.
The Cowboys will continue their volunteer training sessions at The Star in Frisco, ahead of OTAs later this month and the start of training camp in Oxnard, California, in July.
