DETROIT, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- An SUV owned by NFL Network analyst and former Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson is up for sale on Craigslist.

As explained in the Craigslist post the 2009 GMC Yukon was involved in a car crash in 2013 that occurred when Burleson attempted to catch a falling pizza box while driving.

"This is the actual vehicle that Nate Burleson of the Detroit Lions owned and wrecked while trying to save his pizza from hitting the floor," the seller wrote. "This is true story and the vehicle is the original one owned by Nate."

Photos show the car in fairly good condition and sellers say the vehicle has 47,000 miles on it.

The sellers are asking for $19,999 and told CBS Detroit that they own a trucking company and had an in house mechanic repair the vehicle after they acquired it at an auction.

Burleson reportedly confirmed that the car was indeed the one he crashed to ESPN via text.

He suffered a broken arm in the 2013 crash but received a year of free pizza from DiGiorno as a consolation.
