The Minnesota Timberwolves' center complained of a minor injury but declined medical attention on scene. All parties involved were wearing seatbelts and alcohol is not suspected to be a factor. State Patrol says this incident is still under investigation.

Towns was held out of the Timberwolves' game on Friday against the New York Knicks, and again for Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
