Derrick Rose Fined $25k for Comments, Unharmed in Car Accident

by March 14, 2012

Quite a day yesterday for DRose, as he became $25,000 poorer for comments made about the referees, and he was rear-ended while driving his Bentley but walked away from the accident unharmed. Per NBC Chicago: “Rose was in his 2011 Bentley going southbound on Interstate 90 at Ogden Avenue when he was struck by a Saturn, driven by Charles Tratwein of Dundalk, Md., state police said. Tratwein was not injured and Rose, who missed a few games last month because of back spasms, refused treatment at the scene. Rose told first responders that he would be checked by his own doctor at a later time. Via email, the Bulls said: ‘He is fine.’ Tratwein was cited with failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash.”
