Jeff Horn was stunned but not hurt after a three-car pile-up involving his Lexus Sudan in Rocklea earlier this week.
The WBO welterweight champion, who defeated Manny Pacquiao via a controversial decision to shock the world last year, was leaving training when the incident occurred.
Horn is due to fight Terence Crawford next month but will not be pulling out of the fight despite admitting he was very lucky to escape injury.
“No one was badly hurt but it stunned me,’’ Horn told Courier Mail.
“Fortunately I was in the car alone and my wife Jo and baby Isabelle were home. The man in the centre of the crash just had his head buried in his hands. He was really upset. Really in shock.
“I jumped out of the car to make sure everyone was OK. The ambulance people came but thankfully there weren’t any serious injuries. It could have been much worse,” he added.
‘The Hornet’ proved his warrior instinct once again after going into hero mode despite what was obviously a serious situation, which luckily didn’t result in any major ailments.
Putting his WBO welterweight title on the line, Horn heads into the Crawford fight in his usual underdog status after the American became undisputed super-lightweight champion and duly moved up in weight.
