Buffalo, New York – A Buffalo man is in serious but stable condition tonight after crashing his car when a song by the band Nickelback came on the radio.
Benjamin Smith was driving home from work at approximately 6:00pm. While heading south on the I-190, the Nickelback song Rockstar came on the radio. Mr. Smith says he felt completely fine up until that song came onto the radio. As soon as the song came on he states, “I Immediately got an excruciating white hot headache so bad that I couldn’t even think.” He also started convulsing and spasming uncontrollably to the point where he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a guardrail. Luckily, Mr. Smith had his seatbelt on.
Mr. Smith sustained a broken leg, three fractured ribs, a lacerated spleen, a concussion, and various cuts and bruises. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Doctors caution everyone to listen to the radio at your own risk because you never know when a Nickelback song might come on.
