The circus known as the New York Jets just keeps getting better. Reports have surfaced out of Bethlehem, PA that in the evening of January 14, head coach Rex Ryan ran a red light and caused a minor three car accident.
The following account is according to a report from Deadspin:
According to the police, Ryan was driving a red Mustang westbound on West 3rd Street in Bethlehem at 6:14 p.m. on Jan. 14 when he allegedly ran a red light at the intersection of West 3rd and Wyandotte Street. The Mustang collided with another vehicle, sending it crashing into the third vehicle. “It’s a blind hill to some degree,” a police source said, describing the intersection. “It kind of crests at Wyandotte Street.”
The police source said Ryan denied he was speeding, and that the damage at the scene did not indicate he had been speeding. The police source added that Ryan allegedly did not deny he ran the red light, however. All three vehicles sustained what the police source described as “moderate” damage. There were no injuries, and the police source did not say whether Ryan had been given a citation.
Good thing the accident and situation for Ryan aren’t serious, as the Jets have several other problems to address this off-season.
