Patriots player, wife reunited following Foxborough crash
A New England Patriots player and his wife shared a heartfelt moment when they were reunited for the first time after they were seriously hurt in a car crash.
Harvey Langi, a 25-year-old rookie linebacker, and his wife, Cassidy, were rear-ended Friday night when they were stopped at a traffic light on Route 140 around 9:15 p.m. They were hospitalized and treated for their injuries.
Hobbling on crutches, Langi, who suffered leg injuries, was finally back in Cassidy’s loving arms Tuesday.
“Hi! You OK? I’m so sorry it took forever for me to come see you,” Langi tells Cassidy in a video she posted on Instagram.
The couple then pauses for an emotional embrace.
In the post, Cassidy noted that they were on their way home from a date night when an SUV slammed into them.
"I completely blacked out and don't remember anything, while Harvey remembers seeing me, his wife, laying lifeless and gushing blood,” she added.
Cassidy broke her hips and several ribs, while three others were also injured.
Rick Wahlin, Cassidy’s father, told NBC 10 News that the couple is banged up, but will be fine. He added that loved ones are thankful they are alive.
Wahlin also said the Patriots and the community have been unbelievable in their support.
Shortly after the crash, the Patriots released a statement, noting in part, “Our thoughts are with Harvey, the Langi family and those who sustained injuries in (the) accident.”
There’s no word when Langi might return to the field.
