DETROIT -- Authorities say New York Jets receiver and former Michigan standout Braylon Edwards was involved in a minor car crash on the Detroit River island park of Belle Isle.

Officer Phillip Cook said Edwards was driving a two-seat sports car with an unidentified passenger at about 3:40 a.m. ET Friday when he lost control, drove off the road and into a pylon. Neither he nor his passenger was injured.

Cook said there were no tickets issued and alcohol doesn't appear to be a factor. Edwards tweeted: "Got into a fender bender last night, turns out Audi's & rain don't mix to well. I'm good."

Edwards faces trial in a New York DWI case stemming from a Sept. 21 police stop. He has denied the charges.
