Puckett Stable After Car Crash

April 5, 1998

MOUNDS VIEW, Minn. (AP) _ Former Minnesota Twins star Kirby Puckett suffered cuts on his arm and head in a one-vehicle rollover accident on Sunday.

Puckett, who led the Twins to World Series titles in 1987 and ’91, was in stable condition at Fairview-Southdale Hospital in Edina. Puckett was alone in the vehicle when the crash occurred around 1 p.m. on Interstate 35-W near Mounds View.

Puckett was forced to retire in 1996 when an early form of glaucoma left him blind in his right eye.
