UNC senior guard Brandon Robinson was in a two-car accident Saturday night in Carrboro, the men's basketball team announced in a Monday afternoon release.

Robinson was "not seriously injured" and received no citation in the crash, which occurred around midnight, per UNC. The driver of the other vehicle was charged with impaired driving DWI.

Robinson's status at practice this week is "unknown," as is his availability for North Carolina's next game at Pittsburgh on Saturday at noon. The Tar Heels enter the game 8-8 and 1-4 in ACC play.

According an accident report from the Carrboro Police Department, the crash occurred at 12:08 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12. The report said Robinson was traveling southeast on North Greensboro Street when another vehicle, traveling northwest on the street, went "left of center and into oncoming traffic."

Robinson attempted to get out of the way, the report said, but was blocked by a construction barrier. According to a diagram provided on the accident report, the other car hit Robinson's head on.

Robinson, the team's sole four-year scholarship senior, is averaging career highs across the board this season for the Tar Heels: 31.1 minutes, 12.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.

The Douglasville, Ga., native scored a career-high 27 in UNC's Jan. 11 loss to Clemson and also tied a career high with fie 3-pointers.
