Terrell Owens had been test-driving $150,000 car

Owens didn't specify which car he was driving and he didn't reveal any additional information about the crash.

According to TMZ, Owens had been test-driving a $150,000 car earlier in the day and posting videos on social media.

"Here's the curious thing - TO filmed himself Saturday doing a test drive on an Audi Q8 55 TSI ... much of which he documented on his IG Story," TMZ reports.

"He was showing off the features while he was cruising, including the fact that the car got a whopping 81 miles to the gallon before needing to fill up again."

It remains unclear whether or not Owens crashed the Audi or a different car.

After he posted the photos, athletes like Chauncey Billups, Marquise Goodwin, Darrelle Revis, and Deion Sanders commented that they were glad he's unharmed and sending him their prayers. 

Owens thanked them in an Instagram story on Sunday evening.

"Thanks to everyone for reaching out," he wrote. 

"God is beyond good. He is great!! Trust me, I'm so thankful and grateful because this could have been worse than it looks."

Owens was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018. 

The six-time Pro Bowl selection enjoyed a 15-year career that ended with 1078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns.

He played for the San Francisco 49ers for eight seasons, as well as stints with the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals and Seattle Seahawks.
