Sept. 29 (UPI) -- All-Pro defensive end Myles Garrett was cited to "failure to control" his Porsche and received a court summons for next month after he flipped the car in a single-car crash, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said Thursday.

"Unsafe speed for the type of roadway being traveled appeared to be a contributing circumstance," troopers said in a news release. "Impairment from alcohol and/or drugs and distracted driving were not suspected."
