UPDATE: Brady participated in a walk-through practice with the Patriots at 10:45 a.m. ET. A team spokesman said the star quarterback would not be talking to the media today. As expected Bündchen and the couple's son, Benjamin, have returned to Boston this morning from New York's Fashion Week.

Tom Brady appears OK after his Audi was involved in a crash in Boston this morning.

But while Gisele Bündchen's other half was relatively unscathed, rescuers needed the Jaws of Life to free another man involved in the accident.

Brady, 33, had been driving in Boston's Back Bay and was at the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Gloucester Street when the accident occurred.

Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald says that a car and a passenger van collided at 6:34 a.m. ET and then ricocheted into a traffic light. MacDonald confirmed that the van driver was unconcious and needed to be extricated from the vehicle and rushed to a hospital. Another person was treated at the scene. Officials have declined to confirm the identities of anyone involved in the wreck, but multiple sources have ID'd Brady as the driver of the car.

According to Boston's WEEI radio, where Brady has a scheduled appearance each week, the accident happened early today and left him "shaken" but otherwise unhurt.

Brady was well enough to walk around after the crash and refused to be taken to the hospital, according to the Boston Globe. His Audi wasn't so lucky, getting towed away from the scene.

Bündchen, 30, is currently in New York for Fashion Week, and walked the runway Tuesday night at Lincoln Center. She was expected for appearances later tonight for Fashion's Night Out in New York but will likely return to Boston.
