Bengals' Pacman Jones Says He Nearly Died in Highland Heights Traffic Jam

An incident related to power lines closed I-275 in both directions near Highland Heights on Thursday - and a Cincinnati Bengals cornerback says he nearly died in it.

The incident left utility lines and broken poles across the interstate, Duke Energy spokesperson Sally Thelen reported. It also knocked out power to 670 homes and businesses.

The highway was closed so that the power could be shut off and the infrastructure removed.

Bengals cornerback Adam Pacman Jones was caught up in the mess and said that he nearly died in it. He posted his story to Instagram in a post that has since been removed, but is still viewable at TMZ:

"I’m driving, these power lines just fall down out of nowhere bruh, in the middle of the highway. Almost got killed," the Cincinnati Bengals star said on video from the scene. 

"I’m just so happy I’m alright man. If I wouldn’t have came across man I might be dead."

Jones showed damage to his black Dodge Durango -- but says he's not worried about that ... he's happy he wasn't hurt. 

What caused the power lines to fall is not yet known publicly.
