THE SIDELINES : Perkins Injured in Car Crash

From Times Wire Services

Dallas Mavericks forward Sam Perkins was injured in a car wreck Thursday night in the Dallas suburb of Addison.

Perkins' car collided with another car in an intersection as Perkins was attempting to turn left at 9:32 p.m., police spokesman Brad Freis said.

Both drivers were taken to hospitals, with Perkins, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, complaining of possible neck and lower leg injuries, Freis said. The other driver had a possible broken right wrist or forearm and neck injuries, he said.

Janet Alford, emergency room nurse at RHD Memorial Medical Center in Dallas, said Perkins was treated and released at 11:05 p.m. Thursday.

The extent of the injuries to the 6-9 1/2 forward was not immediately known.

Both drivers said they had a green light, Freis said, and the officer at the scene was unable to determine who was at fault.
