MLB star Trevor Bauer is thankful for a whole lot more than a cannon for an arm — like that he wasn’t in his car when it became the victim of a random accident over the U.S. Thanksgiving holidays.

Bauer’s McLaren 650S was sitting in McLaren Houston, receiving a service, when a rogue tire flew off of a truck and smashed through the window of the dealership, just off the I45 in Texas.

The 18-wheeler had crashed, and sent the tire across six lanes of traffic before hitting the dealership wall, bouncing off, and then settling on top of the 650S.

Bauer candidly tweeted about the incident, posting: “Yesterday, if you told me a semi truck would total my Mclaren [sic], I would’ve believed you. If you told me it would happen like THIS? I would’ve said you’re out of your mind.”

He also posted a picture of the incident on his Instagram.

While the baseball player is a star, he’s not exactly lucky. McLaren aside, Bauer recently cut his finger during playoff season when he was trying to fix a drone and the engine started.

Although Bauer said his car was totalled, it’s likely it will be fixed, as the only damage was done to the rear decklid, spoiler and possibly some other minor parts.
