Team Liquid League of Legends star Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong suffered a neck injury after being in a car accident late at night on Thursday, July 18.
The League of Legends top-laner tweeted a photo of the crash with the caption, “i was in uber and car got crashed so lucky im alive you guys need to fasten your seat belt.”
Impact was in the car with Team Liquid Academy mid-laner David “Insanity” Challe. Insanity echoed Impact’s earlier statement about the importance of wearing a seatbelt.
“Jesus I just got into a car accident in an Uber with Impact. We are both ok but stay safe out there and please wear your seatbelt.”
The condition of the Uber driver is unknown.

Despite the injury and possibly coming face-to-face with death, Impact was all smiles in his hospital photos taken after the crash.
“Top alive” the 24-year-old captioned a photo of himself wearing a cervical collar.
In another photo, both Impact and Insanity pose while the latter gives the peace sign.
It’s unclear how severe his injuries are and if they will keep him from competing in his next matches.
Team Liquid will be facing off against Clutch Gaming in the 2019 LCS Summer Split on Saturday, July 20 and the Golden Guardians on July 21.
The team currently stands at 9-3 and one more win will secure them a playoff birth. The top six teams advance to the playoffs after the double round robin concludes. The top two teams will secure a bye to the semi-finals.
