While speaking to reporters Monday, Towns revealed he feels "lucky to be alive" after the incident.
The two-time All-Star was a passenger in a auto being driven by Timberwolves assistant strength and conditioning coach Kurt Joseph when the accident occurred on a Minneapolis freeway. A 2018 Hyundai Sante Fe driven by Kurt Joseph, 29, of Morganville, NJ was slowing for traffic when it was rear ended by a 2007 worldwide semi-truck and trailer driven by Michael Arndt, 51, of Janesville, MN.
With Joseph driving and Towns in the passenger seat, a semi-truck barreled into them at an estimated 35 to 45 miles per hour.
"Accident could have [gone], I'd say I had a 5 percent chance of making it out alive, I hit the 5 percent mark".

Karl-Anthony Towns is expected to take the floor Monday against the Sacramento Kings after a wild three days since surviving a vehicle accident. Joseph, Towns quickly realized, was far more concerned with what was happening behind them than what went on in front of them. I want to be there in person. He added: "I probably should not have made it out like I did, but I'm glad I did". "That's definitely put ahead of KAT the basketball player". I want to high-five them coming off the court, I want to scream for them.
Pretty scary stuff. Let's all be thankful that KAT and his trainer are safe. "I want to do everything I possibly can to be the best cheerleader I can be for them, even if I can't participate".
"I'm always a guy, I've always been like this, where I never want people to worry about me", Towns said.
