RENO, Nev., July 19 (UPI) -- Former NFL star Jim McMahon is hospitalized following the crash of a limousine carrying him and a female companion to Reno-Tahoe Airport, Nevada police said.

Police said the collision occurred Monday afternoon when the Bell Limousine carrying McMahon and 46-year-old Lori Navon to the airport veered off U.S. 395 in Pleasant Valley, KOLO-TV, Reno, reported Tuesday.


The limo plowed through a barbwire fence before landing on its wheels in a field, police said.

The highway patrol said the crash was under investigation but alcohol was not believed to be a factor.
