A good slice of pizza can make a man do a lot of things. However, Nate Burleson took it to a whole new level when he crashed his vehicle trying to save a shotgun-riding box of pizza from sliding onto the floor.
Burleson became distracted while reaching for a pizza sliding off the passenger seat. His SUV swerved and crashed into the center-median wall around 2:30 a.m. Police confirmed that no alcohol was involved. There was also no ticket issued.
Wide receiver Nate Burleson, who leads the team in receptions this season, is out indefinitely after suffering a broken forearm early Tuesday morning in a single-car accident on westbound I-696 in Farmington Hills, a suburb of Detroit.
A wise man once told me, “you don’t need two arms to eat pizza” and “when in doubt, save the pie!”
