WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was involved in a car accident today. According to a report from TMZ, the accident in WWE hometown Stamford, CT was minor, though it did damage McMahon's Bentley, and another vehicle was involved. Luckily, no one was hurt, as Vince McMahon seems to have remarkable luck when it comes to car accidents. In 1998, McMahon WWE superstar "Stone Cold" Steve Austin were involved in an accident that saw Austin accidentally dump the entire contents of a cement mixer truck into the open roof of McMahon's Corvette. Luckily, McMahon wasn't in the car at the time.
Car accidents seem to plague WWE superstars and executives, as Austin himself was struck by a car in the parking lot at Survivor Series in 1999, causing an injury that took him out of action for months.
That wasn't the worst car accident in WWE history, however. Amongst the numerous automobile-related injuries suffered by pro wrestlers, one incident stands out wherein an already injured Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was being driven from the arena in an ambulance when a tractor trailer driven by the group NWO was accidentally driven into the ambulance after Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall accidentally beat the ambulance with tire irons and a steel chain.
In 2007, McMahon was again involved in an auto accident in which he was believed killed when a freak electrical accident caused his limousine to explode spontaneously. Though the car was engulfed in flames, luckily, McMahon escaped unscratched due to wrestler Chris Benoit murdering his family and killing himself the following week.
TMZ obtained a 911 call, which revealed that a female driver in a Toyota Camry was involved in the accident. Though there was a baby seat in the car, the baby did not seem to be present, and it appears that no one was hurt.
According to dirt sheet rumors, McMahon is okay and will be at tonight's Smackdown Live, where he should be a particularly good mood while yelling at the announcers over their headsets.
