WWE.com and Phily.com  is reporting that John Cena has been involved in a car accident in Philadelphia. Cena was rear-ended by a tractor trailer.

No injuries were reported, and Cena will be evaluated by WWE training staff later today.

I can tell you first hand with my experience in EMS, that a rear end collision is the best way to be hit by a vehicle. If Cena was wearing his seat-belt, he will likely only have slight injuries. This all depends on the speed of the trailer at impact though.

There has been plenty of speculation around the web about if this was real or not. With Phily.com reporting the same story as WWE, we can assume that this is in fact real.

People are also saying that since Cena did not go to the hospital, this must be fake.

When an ambulance arrives to any kind of call, the patient has the right to refuse medical treatment, as long as the patient is not showing signs of not being in a proper state of mind.

If Cena did not feel he was injured, the ambulance could not force him to go to the hospital.

The next couple of days will really show if Cena suffered any injury. A rear end collision usually results in some form of whiplash, and it is not uncommon for whiplash to show up a day later.

WrestleMania is just around the corner, and if Cena is hurt, it could spell disaster for the WWE.

Stay tuned for more updates as the come in.
