If you think wearing a bicycle helmet is for wimps, think again. Joey Harrington, a 33 year old former National Football League quarterback, was struck from behind by a driver of an SUV while riding a bike. On Sunday, July 31st, 2011, Harrington was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries including a broken collarbone, a punctured lung, and a cut on his head. The crash caused Harrington to land on the vehicle. He was upside down when he skidded off and landed on his head and shoulder. Harrington was wearing a bicycle helmet which prevented much more serious injury. Harrington is expected to be released from the hospital on Tuesday, August 02, 2011.
