Bengals' Chris Henry Seriously Injured in Car Crash
0Comments
12/16/2009 5:43 PM ET By Michael David Smith


Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry was seriously hurt in a car crash Wednesday in the Charlotte area, TV station WLWT is reporting. The Bengals confirmed the news, releasing a short statement that Henry suffered "very serious" injuries.

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan told WLWT that Henry is listed in serious condition in a Charlotte-area hospital. Brennan said the team is ready to offer assistance to Henry's family as needed.

There is no word on the cause of the crash or the specific nature of Henry's injuries. The Bengals say he was in Charlotte visiting his girlfriend's family.

Henry, who was once a poster boy for the NFL's problems with off-field player misconduct, has had a relatively quiet 2009 both on and off the field. He had 12 catches for 236 yards as a Bengals backup this season before being placed on injured reserve with a broken forearm last month.

They mentioned that on 1560 but still can't find a report to document back-up his passing. Most reports are saying "life threatening auto accident"

Quote:
A law enforcement official in North Carolina tells us they "observed no visible injuries" on Tonga at the scene of the accident.

Cops said there was a "domestic situation" just before Henry fell out of the back of the truck. Authorities are investigating whether Henry jumped off the truck or whether he was thrown.

The official says they are investigating the possibility the Cincinnati Bengal was thrown from the truck after Tonga swerved back and forth.
Quote:
Police told the Cincinnati Enquirer that Henry jumped into the back of the bed of a truck driven by his fiance, Loleini Tonga. Henry then fell out of the truck as the dispute between the two lingered.

Police found Henry with life-threatening injuries.

This is incredibly sad. I know the guy has had trouble but I like the fact that he kept coming back and trying. I think he had avoided trouble this year. Sounds like he jumped in truck and got thrown. My prayers to him

He kept coming back because he needed the money and this is all he knows how to do. It's not any more noble than that.

Based on what little I know of him, Chris Henry isn't a very good person. But nobody deserves this. I hope he pulls through.

I'm not saying his death or life affects my life. We didn't know him. But the coach kept giving him shots. But my condolences are sincere. I'm by no mean naive. At 39, I almost died twice of two random events to my heart that had nothing to do with my lifestyle or genetics. Just a fluke flu bug and a messed up procedure. My perspective after this really put focus on my kids and family even more(I was tight with my family and was a doting Dad before) So when I see a guy really flawed like Henry and I read he might have finally gotten it, I'd like to think that hopefully he had a wake up call and maybe his kids and family started taking priority. With that said, it would be ashame to get it and then lose it all. Especially if the kids loved him for being Dad and not the guy with a rap sheet.
