The NFL’s Take a Player to School program is a nice opportunity for kids to meet real, live football players, and for players to encourage kids to balance their school work with a commitment to physical fitness.
But a Take a Player to School event near Cincinnati today ended badly for Bengals defensive back Chinedum Ndukwe.
After Ndukwe visited Ockerman Elementary School, his limousine crashed into a utility pole. Ndukwe wasn’t injured, and the child who had won the Take a Player to School contest, who was given a ride in the limo earlier in the day, was not in the car at the time of the crash.
Police told WLWT that the driver of a second vehicle might have suffered a broken arm, but the crash remains under investigation, and police would not reveal additional details.
