Nov 19, 2013, 5:39 PM EDT

Veteran San Jose forward Patrick Marleau was involved in a “serious” car accident on Tuesday afternoon, according to KRON 4 Bay Area News:

Marleau, 34, of Saratoga, was traveling on W. Taylor Street when his Mercedes SUV collided with another vehicle.

The conditions of the others involved in the accident is unknown at this time.

The Sharks quickly released a statement via Twitter:

KRON subsequently posted this photo of the incident (do note the vehicle depicted is not Marleau’s):

Update: Here’s another image of the scene with Marleau’s vehicle, from KRON’s Grant Lodes:

Marleau is off to a solid start this year, scoring 20 points in 21 games while sitting second among all Sharks in goals, with 10.

    Ikes.. From that picture it looks like Marleau’s SUV went straight into the car while trying to take a turn onto the road and hit the side of the car straight on. Obviously either vehicle could be at fault, but its hard to see anyone coming out of the other car without serious injuries, or worse. Best of luck.

    Anyone notice the Sharks Territory sign in the window… I hope the driver is alright, my thoughts go out to them.

    Holy crap. Given the damage to the car I’d like to see an update posted here on the condition of the occupants.

      Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks was involved in a serious car accident in San Jose Tuesday. He was not hurt, according to the team.

      The driver of the other car was injured. A witness told NBC Bay Area the second driver had his legs trapped for a time and appeared to be in a lot of pain.

    looks like you’re correct based on initial point of contact

    looks like marleau’s at fault, entering roadway when unsafe to do so…big payday coming for owner of the mustang if that’s what it was

    wait, was that a box of well used cervical collars tumbling out of the mustang?

    better call saul

      Looks like the mustang was coming out of a p lot and Marleau t-boned the mustang.

    possibly, given the extent of damage to the mustang, and its resting place…if that were true, marleau would have reacted and tried to swing by on the left

    video taken at the site shows contact debris on side of road oposite parking lot

    this is why you buy a large bodied suv or truck rather than some japanese or korean death-trap

    I read an article that said that Mustang’s driver is injured didn’t say how bad but it did say that the driver’s legs were pinned for a while and he was complaining of pain. He was taken to a nearby hospital.

    I think Marleau was making the turn and the Mustang ran the light. Who knows for sure. I am sure we will hear about who was at fault in the coming days

    It’ll take more than that to injure a hockey player :]

    As a Kings fan that I may be, but happy to hear Patrick Marleau is doing good.
