Chinedum Ndukwe uninjured after limousine crashes into utility pole

New, comments

How does one celebrate a win over the Baltimore Ravens and gets amped up to play the Pittsburgh Steelers for the division lead? Well, if you're Chinedum Ndukwe, you're in the limousine that crashes into a utility pole.

Defensive back Chinedum Ndukwe was not injured in the crash, which happened around 11:15 a.m. at McMillan Street and Highland Avenue.

A student at Ockerman Elementary School, in Florence, had won a visit from Ndukwe as part of the player's campaign, Fuel Up to Play 60, which encourages students to eat healthy and stay fit.

The child was given a ride in the limo but was not in the car at the time of the crash.

Police said a second vehicle might have been involved in the crash, and that car's driver was taken to University Hospital with a possibly broken arm.

Ndukwe was part of Take A Player to School, where kids meet NFL players who encourage them about school and "a commitment to physical fitness."
