Tony Romo

Twitter and the internet community was all the buzz yesterday with the news that Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo was hurt in a freak car accident where he broke both of his legs.

The website behind this story was Global Associated News.

Here is the story originated from their website:

A spokesperson for the Dallas highway safety authority (HSA) has confirmed that Tony Romo has broken both of his legs in a traffic altercation. He has been transported via ambulance to a local Dallas hospital for treatment, and the full extent of his injuries are not known at this time, however, both of his legs were visibly broken and not life threatening according to sources. The accident involved a 2012 BMW driven by Tony Romo and a 76 year old female driver in a 2010 Audi. The driver of the Audi was issued a citation for failing to stop at a red light before striking the vehicle driven by Tony Romo at a high rate of speed.

Carolina Panther’s quarterback Cam Newton was the victim of the same hoax about a month ago.

At the bottom of Global Associated News web site reads:
