Steelers QB Ben Rothlisberger injured in a bike crash - June 12, 2006, 11:27 AM

Just saw it on FOX news... No real word yet as it's breaking news... but it appears Ben Roethlisberger, Quarterback for the Pittsburgh was involved in a crash in Pittsburgh possibly involving another vehicle. The bike appeared to be a V-Twin with the front end banged up with bent forks and front wheel destroyed. I'm sure there will be news updates... just an FYI.

Yet another case of not wearing your gear.

Steelers quaterback "Big Ben" wrecked his motorcycle today. He was thrown through a car windsheild with no helmet on. Possible he might not make it. I'll post the article once it is released.

Hope he makes it and recovers quick!!

from ESPN:

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been in a motorcycle accident in Pittsburgh this morning.
Witnesses told authorities that the player's motorcycle collided with a car near a downtown intersection and that Roethlisberger's head hit the windshield and was bleeding. Roethlisberger has said in the past that he prefers not to wear a helmet when riding.
ESPN.com's John Clayton reports that early indications are the injuries are not life-threatening.
One witness told KDKA television that Roethlisberger was conscious but appeared disoriented before he was taken from the scene to Mercy Hospital.
A Steelers spokesman is at the hospital and confirmed Roethlisberger is being treated there, but wouldn't provide additional details.
Information from The Associated Press was used in this report


EDIT: you guys are quick

from foxsports.com

According to a report on WTAE's website, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was injured in a motorcycle accident Monday morning.

The Steelers confirmed the accident for the Pittsburgh TV station, but there was no immediate word about the extent of his injuries.

A witness told the station that Roethlisberger went over the handlebars, hit the windshield of another vehicle, then hit the ground.
Roethlisberger was reportedly not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
Shortly after Kellen Winslow's motorcycle accident, which forced the Browns tight end to miss the entire 2005 season, Steelers head coach Bill Cowher expressed concern over his own star player's infatuation with the bikes.
"It (a pro football career) is a very small time in your life, and you've got to be very careful. You can see it documented with Kellen Winslow," Cowher said. "Not just in riding motorcycles, but where you go and who you associate with." Cowher reportedly spoke to Roethlisberger in May of 2005 after photos surfaced in which the Steelers quarterback was posing helmetless on a motorcycle. Roethlisberger has said in the past that he prefers to ride without a helmet.

This has to be a statement to his I.Q. Career based on physical abilities and he's riding around with no gear.
