Former Bear 'Tackles' Car, Gets Sued

How's this for bad PR: Former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Steve McMichael allegedly overshoots his highway exit and slams his Cadillac into Marzanna Jakszewicz's vehicle (WBBM Chicago), which was stopped at a light, resulting in a herniated disc.

Instead of apologizing to Jakszewicz or at least checking to see if she was okay, he reportedly "staggered from his car mumbling incoherencies," verbally abused her and promptly left the scene.

Jakszewicz's car also hit another vehicle after McMichael's overshoot apparently, but no injuries in that vehicle were reported.

She is now consulting a Chicago injury lawyer and intends to sue McMichael for personal injury damages.
