Brian McNamee, the personal trainer who has said he injected former Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone, fainted while driving and crashed his car head-on into a city bus, a newspaper reported.
Brian McNamee told police he blacked out because of an ongoing medical problem and regained consciousness only as his Lexus hurtled into the bus Thursday in Queens, the Daily News reported Friday.
(from CBC) McNamee's Lexus, another car and the bus were involved in the crash around 12:30 p.m. Thursday on Central Avenue in Queens' Far Rockaway neighbourhood, according to the newspapers.
McNamee must be continuously be under incredible stress from the Clemens episode. His 'taped' phone call to Clemens in December indicated as much.
McNamee was in legal trouble for steroid distribution, when connected to Radomski, & the the Mitchell Report. He then gave up Clemens and other MLP players as a result of legal leverage. Further, he was part of the national spectacle during the Clemens-McNamee Congressional Hearings. All this apparently built up.
Here's hoping things get better for McNamee. No one deserves all this pressure -- unless there is deception involved.
