    Big Ben in Motorcycle Accident

    He does not wear a helmet!!!


    http://www.wpxi.com/sports/9356102/detail.html

    These stories say the injuries appear to be NOT severe, while on the television they are saying injuries appear to be severe.

    Obviously, we don't know anything at all YET, because he just arrived at the hospital!!!

    Prayers for Ben and his family.

    saw this in FOX as well. He better be OK...training starts soon! Go Steelers!
    I also heard that his injuries aren't severe...but who really knows at this point with all of these conflicting reports!
    Prayers for Big Ben!
    I really like the guy but, he should have be wearing a darned helmet! He has said before that he doesn't like to wear them...bet he will now...Gosh, I sure hope he's well. Too talented of an athlete with a huge career in front of him for him to not be fine....

    Go figure why they will wear a helmet playing football, but not on the streets on a motorcycle!!

    They are required to wear the football helmet.( I know you already know that, I.m not trying to be a smart azz.)

    I'm glad that here in California we have a law that hemets must be worn for motorcycles. Just like we have the seat belt laws.

    Oh, people were complaining about it a lot for awhile but they've gotten used to it. I can't quote any stats but I'm sure it's saved many lives.

    I'm hoping the best for this young man. The article said he was talking and trying to get up so that sounds hopeful.

    FOX says he is serious but stable condition...

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,199156,00.html

    Coach Cowher had lectured him about riding it and Terry Bradshaw told him to ride it when he's retired. I've found that even though you may want to fight it, it is wise to listen to your elders!

    My husband is having a fit right now! Big, big Steelers fan, he is! We all are, but he bleeds yellow and gold, lol. He was with them even through the rotten years! Prayers for Big Ben!

    HUGE Steelers and Big Ben fan here.
    Buzz - where are you?

    Thanks for that recent link. I am glad he was trying to get up - maybe this won't be too serious and he learned a valuable lessoon.

    I have heard it was in his NFL football contract to wear a helmet.

    Many prayers for Ben.

    No, wearing a helmet while driving a motorcycle is NOT in his contract.

    The trauma doctor said he was in "serious but stable condition". Also said he is in the operating room. That was at 1:30 PM EDT.

    They showed pictures on the TV of the car he hit. His head hit the windshield, it is shattered and dented in. A witness says he hit the windshield, then was thrown to the pavement where he hit his head again and then rolled over and over. Other reports say he was bleeding profusely from a cut above one eye and another cut on the back of his head.
