'Newman' Death Hoax Has
McKean County Connection

By now you’ve probably heard about the hoax involving Seinfeld actor Wayne Knight, better known as Newman.

What you may not know is that the person who started the rumor on a TMZ look-alike site used last week’s fatal accident in McKean County as the basis for the story.

On Sunday, Knight tweeted, “Some of you will be glad to hear this, others strangely disappointed, but….I am alive and well!”

As for the survivors of the real accident, they are still hospitalized in Buffalo in serious condition.

Editor's note: People who do things like this are disgusting!
