Former NFL quarterback Jim McMahon injured in crash
I don’t know what is going on with the car service drivers but that industry needs to take heed to the most recent incidents involving pro athletes. Not a good look for their overall image and level of trust.
Jim McMahon, former Chicago Bears quarterback and Super Bowl champ, was injured Monday when a limo he was riding in crashed outside Reno, Nevada.
The crash was reported just before 2 p.m. on U.S. 395 near Andrew Lane.
The limo, owned by Bell Limousine of Reno, was heading north when it left the four-lane highway, crashed through a wire fence, over a culvert and into a pasture, Trooper Mike Edgell.
“Right now he’s in a lot of pain,” Edgell said later Monday. He described McMahon’s injuries as “non-incapacitating,” and it wasn’t immediately known if he would be admitted to the hospital.
Apparently, McMahon and his female companion were en route to the airport when the accident occurred. Alcohol did not appear to be a factor as far as the driver is concerned.
Lamar Odom was just involved in a chauffeured vehicle accident this past week. Read details HERE.
In February, McMahon’s former teammate and fellow Super Bowl champ Dave Duerson committed suicide after suffering the effects of what he suspected was brain trauma which was later confirmed as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease also likely caused by the rigors of playing football.
