Default Breaking News: Roethlisberger Injured In Motorcycle Accident

A serious story coming out of Pittsburgh: It appears Super Bowl hero Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was involved in a motorcycle accident about 45 minutes ago (11:30 a.m. ET) in Pittsburgh. Quoth TV station KDKA:

According to an eyewitness, he was not wearing a helmet when he flew over the handlebars and hit his head on the windshield of a car. The witness tells KDKA he said his name was Ben and seemed groggy. She says he was bleeding from his head. He has been taken to Mercy Hospital.
The picture on KDKA’s site is rather scary, and there’s no word as of yet on his condition. We will keep you updated, and, of course, will be keeping good thoughts.

This looks quite serious and I hope Big Ben is okay. But no helmet? And he had been warned about this before. Reminds me of the Jay Williams situation.
