Late Saturday night (March 19), WWE SmackDown Superstar Shannon Moore was involved in a head-on collision with a fairly high ranking sergeant in the US Army near Fort Bragg.
A resident of Whispering Pines, NC, Moore was returning home from meeting with friends from the WWE RAW roster following their show at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, NC. Moore was driving his Hummer and was hit head-on by the soldier, who was arrested for drunken driving.
Moore was being followed home by fellow WWE Superstar Matt Hardy, who lives nearby. Hardy had been in the lead, but Moore had passed him when the accident happen. Had Hardy been hit instead of Moore, he could well have been killed as he was driving a Corvette.
It's been reported elsewhere that Moore will miss some ring time, but got away very lucky as he suffered only a concussion and a possible minor neck injury.
Man, I didnt pick Moore as a guy who would be driving a hummer. Still, that sucks for him, but at least he didnt get really hurt.
Wow. I'm grateful that neither man was hurt all that bad, because God knows it could've been a lot worse. As the article says, if Hardy had been hit instead, he'd likely be dead. I think we should all thank God that both guys are safe, and that the soldier's vehicle hit Moore's SUV instead of Hardy's 'Vette.
