|Former NFL Star McMahon Injured in Limo Accident
|RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Former NFL quarterback Jim McMahon is being treated at a hospital after the limousine he was riding in crashed through a fence south of Reno.
The Nevada Highway Patrol says the accident happened around 2 p.m. Monday on U.S. 395 in Pleasant Valley. The patrol says the limo was heading north when it left the four-lane highway, crashed through a fence and into a pasture.
Trooper Mike Edgell says both McMahon and the limo driver were taken to Renown Regional Medical Center as a precaution. He says there were no serious injuries.
McMahon played 15 seasons in the NFL and helped the Chicago Bears win the Super Bowl in 1986. He was at Lake Tahoe over the weekend to compete in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.
