Roethlisberger did not have a motorcycle license

According to an ESPN report, he had a legal driver's license, but not one for a motorcycle. Not a smart move...

Report: Roethlisberger didn't have motorcycle licenseESPN.com news services


Ben Roethlisberger might have been riding without a license to drive a motorcycle when he was involved in an accident Monday.

Pittsburgh television station KDKA reported Tuesday that police are checking whether the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback had a license.

Roethlisberger was riding this motorcycle when he collided with an automobile in Pittsburgh on Monday morning.
Sources told the TV station that Roethlisberger had a license to operate a car but has never had a Pennsylvania motorcycle license.

Roethlisberger had a learner's permit to operate a motorcycle that expired March 29 but had never taken the written and driving tests for a motorcycle license, a source told KDKA.

Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Tammy Ewin told the station that police would "have no comment on licensing issues" until after the accident investigation.

Roethlisberger, the youngest quarterback to lead a team to the Super Bowl championship, had surgery Monday after breaking his jaw and nose in a motorcycle crash.

Roethlisberger remained in serious but stable condition after seven hours of surgery, according to Dr. Daniel Pituch, chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery at Mercy Hospital.

"He suffered multiple facial fractures," Pituch said. "All of the fractures were successfully repaired. His brain, spine, chest and abdomen appear to be without serious injury. And there are no other confirmed injuries at this time."

The doctors declined to release further information at the family's request.

ESPN.com's John Clayton confirmed that Roethlisberger also suffered a 9-inch laceration to the back of his head, has lost or chipped a number of teeth and has minor injuries to his knees from hitting the pavement.

Roethlisberger, 24, was not wearing a helmet, police said. He has said he likes to ride without one, a habit that once prompted a lecture from Pittsburgh coach Bill Cowher.

In May 2005, Cowher warned him about safe riding after Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. was injured in a motorcycle accident. Winslow tore knee ligaments and was lost for the season.

Roethlisberger has pointed out a Pennsylvania state law requiring helmets was amended in September 2003 to make helmets optional.

ESPN.com football writers Len Pasquarelli and John Clayton and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

I HATE when news reports say was the youngest QB to lead a team to victory in a SB. They said that last night on FOX too. Ben did not LEAD his team in that game. He sukked in the SB and had the lowest QB rating of a team to win a SB. His rating was 20 something. Gimme a break!

I feel bad for the guy and wish him a speedy and full recovery...

but what a moran. I mean, he lives and breathes by the protection his helmet provides him on the field and yet doesn't see the need for the same on the road. And now this???

It would be a shame if he lost his career due to his youthful indiscretion and feeling of invincibility.

I read somewhere that like half of people in m/c accidents don't have a license. Dunno if it's true or not.

Maybe he wasn't too expert of a rider or something.

do you people honestly believe a helmet would've made THAT much of a difference? He friggin' flew face first into another vehichles windshield. Now, wearing a helmet is probably pretty smart...but I have a feeling he still would've been pretty ****ed up.

given the nature of his injuries and the fact that he survived, I'd say yes a helmet would have made all the difference.

How is that not obvious?

A broken jaw and a laceration is not going to keep him from plying football again.... his knees on the other hand are a completely different matter.

Not having a broken jaw or smashed in bones all over his face?

I am not sure what makes me laugh more this statement or the fact the meme thinks he is a moran.

He's probably lucky he hit the windshield, at least it has some give. If he had hit a metal part he'd probably be dead or have severe brain damage.
