Buffalo Sports Director Involved in Nasty Bike Accident

The Tegna station in Buffalo will be without their Sports Director for awhile. 

WGR SD Adam Benigni will be off the air for an undetermined period of time while recovering from multiple injuries after being hit by a car while riding his bicycle on Thursday.

Benigni thanked well-wishers Saturday morning via Twitter and tweeted:

Benigni tells the Buffalo News that his head and face took the impact of the accident and that he is dealing with a concussion, headaches, lost teeth, facial stitches, various cuts, bumps and bruises and other pains from the impact. Ouch!

He added that a brain bleed “appears to be resolved” and that a follow up CT scan will be done this week “to further evaluate.”

“Bike helmets are very good things,” he added, suggesting his injuries could have been far worse.

According to Benigni a driver “cut in front of me at (the) last second.”

Benigni did spend much of his Sunday tweeting about the Buffalo Bills game.
