A Patriots’ employee, who had the Vince Lombardi Trophy in their car, was involved in a car accident in Maine on Friday night. Apparently, the employee’s car hit a deer. Fortunately for the Patriots’ employee, they were not hurt and the trophy was intact. The trophy was from the Patriots’ victory over the Falcons in Super Bowl 51.
Based off the tweet below by the Patriots, the trophy did get to its location on Saturday.
