Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Trevor Bauer’s holiday season started poorly as his car experienced a crash. On Tuesday, a tire dropped from a semi-truck, rolled through six lanes of traffic on a Houston highway, struck a wall, and struck into his 2016 McLaren 650S.
The tire went through a double-paned glass window and dropped on Bauer’s McLaren. According to reports from the scene, no one was harmed in this freak accident.
Bauer’s sports car was being kept at a Houston McLaren dealership. TMZ Sports reported that the car was insured, but ended up being totaled because of the cost of all the damages.
After the accident, Bauer doesn’t seem to be very upset about the accident and has posted his views on Twitter.
Yesterday, if you told me a semi truck would total my Mclaren, I would’ve believed you. If you told me it would happen like THIS? I would’ve said you’re out of your mind. If this isn’t @Mayhem I don’t know what is @Allstate pic.twitter.com/XqdiIgojB8

Bauer is presently on the Reds following the event of being traded to Cincinnati from the Cleveland Indians at the 2019 trade deadline. The right-hander has as well pitched for the Arizona Diamondbacks in his eight-year MLB career.
He is coming off a season in which he scored an 11-13 record to go together with a 4.48 ERA between the Indians and Reds. Bauer is in the final year of his agreement and is about to make $18.6 million with the Reds this season — obviously more than enough for one new McLaren.
Bauer had been traded to the Reds in a three-team deal which also sent Yasiel Puig and Franmil Reyes to the Indians.
