(Newser) – Eleven months ago, Ben Roethlisberger was nearly killed in a motorcycle collision. Now, ESPN takes a look at the people who's lives were changed that day: the quarterback who wasn't wearing a helmet, the surgeon who became an overnight celebrity, the 62-year-old driver who failed to yield and learned to live with death threats.

As the author says, "Everybody in Pittsburgh has a story of where they were when Roethlisberger crashed. It's like the modern-day Kennedy assassination, minus the grassy knoll."
