so... if he had enough time to call his wife and let her know he was "getting ready to have a seizure", why on Earth wouldn't he have at least pulled over to the side of the road?

Hope he's gonna be okay! At least he's not dead.

I mentioned this to my husband, whose been a lifelong watcher of wrestling and his first reaction was "Oh. Oh that sucks! .....uh if he had enough time to call his wife and say he was going to have a seizure, why didn't he try to pull over and stop the car?"

Let me get this straight: He was able to call his wife, WHILE driving, to tell her he's about to have a seizure but didn't have the sense to pull over and STOP driving? He should be charged with reckless driving. Lucky he didn't take anyone with him.

If he knew he was going to have a seizure I have a few questions.
1. Why was he driving in the first place? Most states you have to be seizure free for 1 year before you get your driving privileges back.
2. Why not pull over and call 911 instead of calling your wife?
3. With a history of seizures, what are you doing out on the road late at night by yourself?

Might want to think about using "Breaking News" in an article like this one.

As Charlotte responded I can't believe that a single mom can earn $7771 in 1 month on the computer. If you don't belive, just read this link www.LazyCash27.com

Did anyone think maybe he called his wife just to let her know and was looking for somewhere to pull off the road and park? It states he was on a parkway in a newspaper article-there's not a lot of places to just pull over on those. He might have let her know his location and had her call for help or even to come to him. Point is, no one knows the situation so don't judge or criticize. I just hope everything goes well for him.

common sense    

Would his broken jaw be included as part of the broke bones in his face part?
