Denard Robinson: Lucky I Didn't Kill Anyone In Bizarre Pond Crash

Breaking News

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson says he's "blessed" that he didn't hurt or kill anyone when he crashed his car into a pond earlier this month ... saying, "The situation could have been a lot worse."

Robinson spoke with reporters Thursday about the July 3rd accident -- in which his Impala drifted across several lanes of traffic and crashed into a retention pond. Cops say Robinson and a female passenger were asleep in the sinking car when help arrived. 

"I fell asleep at the light ... I was at the light sitting there waiting and I ended up dozing off. It was late at night and I had a busy day. It was one of those days where I should’ve just stayed in."

He was also adamant he was NOT under the influence of drugs or alcohol -- saying, "If that was the case, I would’ve had a DUI."

FYI, Robinson was not arrested -- as the responding officer did not believe Robinson showed signs of intoxication. 

Still, Denard says he's happy no one was hurt. 

"I feel blessed, because it could have been a situation where I wasn’t talking to you right now ... The situation could’ve been way worse."

"I could’ve hurt somebody or killed somebody, so I’m truly blessed that nothing happened to nobody. I came out with no scratches and my passenger was the same way."
