Junior Seau car accident.
We're told the retired NFL superstar sustained injuries in the wreck -- cops are on scene. TMZ obtained these photos of Seau's Cadillac Escalade which landed at the bottom of a cliff several feet from the beach.

Seau has been transported to a local hospital. The accident happened just south of Oceanside, CA  ... where the former San Diego Charger had just been released from jail hours earlier.

 As TMZ first reported, Junior Seau was arrested early this morning for domestic violence.

Next time, tell people who a "celebrity" is so we don't have to Google the name.

And, maybe TMZ should have a separate site for sports celebrities.

I wonder if he was trying to commit suicide? Was he drunk?

Would be nice if the article was a little clearer as to whether this was an accident, or whether Seau deliberately drove off the cliff. The headline makes it sound as though it's the latter.

And Hep, just because you don't happen to be a sports fan doesn't mean Junior Seau isn't a celebrity. If you don't recognize a name, why don't you just ignore the article instead of wasting your time Googling it?

A guy tried to harm himself in Pismo Beach on Saturday after breaking up with his girlfriend by driving his car off the 101 but ended up killing 2 pedestrians. He survived. Wonder if Junior checked to see if anyone was on the beach first.
