Stacey Poole, Terrence Jones involved in car accident

Terrence Jones and Stacey Poole were passengers in a vehicle involved in an accident around 2:30 a.m. early Friday morning.

They were riding in a car that was struck by a vehicle, whose driver has been charged with driving under the influence, that swerved into the wrong lane, UK head coach John Calipari said on his website. The accident occurred at Euclid Avenue and High Street.

Poole and the driver were questioned at the scene and taken to the emergency room by ambulance, Calipari said. Jones left the scene for “fear of an altercation with the driver” of the other vehicle, Calipari said, and was later taken to the hospital. Both Poole and Jones sustained minor injuries and have been released.

“Thanking god for blessing me to live and wake up this morning,” Jones tweeted.

As a result of the accident, Calipari has imposed a team curfew of an unspecified time.

“Our players did not break any rules by being out last night,” Calipari wrote on his website. “As of yesterday, this team did not have a curfew and our normal procedure is to begin the season without one. I usually let the actions of my team determine a curfew. However, because of the actions of a select few, this team has showed me an inability to make proper judgment and decisions that they’ve been given the freedom to make. Therefore, going forward, this team will now have a curfew for the rest of the season. I will inform the team of a time later today.”

The driver of the car with Jones and Poole in it was Larry Warren, a UK student from Portland, Ore., and a high school teammate of Jones. has a picture of the wreck here.

Calipari said no evidence of drugs or alcohol was found and that Poole and Jones have not been charged with wrongdoing.

Calls to Lexington police were not immediately returned.
