Florida Gulf Coast University athletic director Ken Kavanagh was involved in a car crash at 6:42 p.m. Tuesday on Daniels Parkway and Chamberlin Parkway in Lee County.

Kavanagh and another driver emerged unharmed, and two more with only minor injuries, after a pickup truck hydroplaned, swerved over the median and collided with the front Kavanagh’s SUV. A car hit the back of his vehicle, causing it to swerve right into the path of another car.

Kavanagh tweeted about his gratitude to emerge from the four-vehicle incident unscathed:

For those who don’t believe in Guardian Angels, I beg to differ after pick up truck hydroplaned over median into my lap…” Kavanagh wrote. “Thanks to Fort Myers EMTs & First Responders & @LeeHealthFdn staff @ Gulf Coast Med Center…Appreciate valued thoughts & prayers…Truly Blessed.”
