But the facts (from the newspaper, I haven't seen this on TV or heard it on radio) is that the woman turned left in front of Roethlisberger.
From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Martha Fleishman, 62, of Squirrel Hill, was driving the car west on Second Avenue and turning left onto the 10th Street Bridge when Roethlisberger's Suzuki Hayabusa, which was heading east on Second Avenue, struck the car.
A witness said Roethlisberger didn't appear to be speeding in the 35 mph zone, and Fleishman had slowed to make the turn. Both drivers had a green light, the witness said.
Had she done this in front of an SUV (or another Chrysler New Yorker) there would have been little to talk about, probably no injuries, no news. I am sure that she "feels really bad" but the facts are that she caused the collision, and everyone is piling on Roethlisberger.
Yellow flag. Fifteen yards on everybody for Roughing the Passer.
I hope Ben recovers completely. I also hope he continues to exercise his freedom. I hope little women in big cars start looking where they are going.
