West Coast Eagles player Tyler Brockman was in a car accident involving a single vehicle, which is currently under investigation by the police.

West Coast Football Club has stated their commitment to prioritizing Tyler Brockman’s health and wellbeing following his involvement in a car accident currently under police investigation. The incident occurred in Geraldton, 420km north of Perth, early on Saturday morning, after Brockman had attended a family funeral the previous Friday. The club clarified that no other vehicles were involved, and thankfully, there were no reported injuries.

In their official statement, West Coast Eagles emphasized that Brockman’s personal circumstances are complex, and as such, they will focus on his health and wellbeing before considering his return to football. The club has notified the AFL about the incident and will await the outcome of the police investigation before making further comments.

Brockman, who played 26 games for Hawthorn before joining West Coast last year, has faced challenges on the field recently, being goalless in his first six games for the Eagles and omitted from the team for the previous week’s match against Essendon.

As the team prepares for their upcoming clash with Collingwood at Marvel Stadium, they are also dealing with several injury concerns. Jake Waterman is sidelined due to concussion, while Elliot Yeo is expected to be out for a period after sustaining a groin injury. Additionally, Noah Long is awaiting scan results after a possible knee injury during the weekend’s game, with concerns about potential damage to his anterior cruciate ligament.
