Ben Roethlisberger broke both of his legs in a car accident. At least that’s what the Internet is saying. However the Pittsburg Steelers quarterback didn’t break his legs because he was never in a car accident. Roethlisberger is the victim of an Internet hoax.
A report came out on Wednesday by Global Associated News, which read:
” A spokesperson for the Denver highway safety authority (HSA) has confirmed that Ben Roethlisberger has broken both of his legs in a traffic altercation. He has been transported via ambulance to a local Denver hospital for treatment, and the full extent of his injuries are not known at this time, however, both of his legs were visibly broken and not life threatening according to sources.”
“The accident involved a 2012 BMW driven by Ben Roethlisberger and a 76 year old female driver in a 2010 Audi. The driver of the Audi was issued a citation for failing to stop at a red light before striking the vehicle driven by Ben Roethlisberger at a high rate of speed.”
Since there are so many details to the story, it is easy to believe that it’s real, but Global Associated News creates fake reports using a generator.
A message at the bottom of the site reads:
“FAKE… THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes!
