A native of Jackson, Miss.
Norton made slight contact with another vehicle due to an improper lane change, causing him to crash into a concrete barrier. Pena was also not suspected of using drugs or alcohol before the wreck, according to the report.
"V01 [Norton] was traveling westbound on State Road 836 in the inside lane of the exit ramp to State Road 826 northbound".
As Norton (Vehicle 1) was making his move, he sideswiped another auto - a 2015 Maserati Quattroporte - which sent Norton careening into a barrier and ultimately causing his auto to flip. Regardless, Norton wants to remain positive and even thanked all of the teams and players who have shown him support over the past week.
The Maserati came to a controlled stop - and it doesn't appear anyone in that auto was seriously injured.
The NFL announced all of Norton's medical expenses will be covered by the league and his team's insurance. He has received an outpouring of support from family, former Dolphins and University of Miami teammates, friends and strangers.
Following the crash, Norton's agent said his arm had to be amputated, possibly ending his football career.
Kawa also said Norton was having another surgery Tuesday on his left arm and will need two more surgeries before he's in the clear, in terms of his arm. "Any continued support is appreciated", according to the page. One thing keeps me going and that is that I am still able to be here. "A lot of people are burying people. I'm good thanks for the prayers to God be the glory".
"I'm alive", Norton said.
On Thursday he used an Instagram post to encourage others to donate blood.
Norton, who played collegiately at Miami, has been in the hospital since July 4 and has had at least four surgeries on his arm.
