Title: The Hoax Thread
Post by: Mac on May 28, 2014, 04:52:46 pm
Reports say beloved Lou Ferrigno was killed in a multi-vehicle crash between Santa Barbara and Goleta. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics responding to the vehicle accident and was identified by photo ID found on his body. Witnesses say a blue Ford F150 was seen driving recklessly just before the accident and was also seen speeding away after the accident.

A spokesperson for the Santa Barbaria Police Dept. told reporters that Mr. Ferrigno's vehicle rolled several times killing him instantly. They did not have a cause of the accident as of yet.

“We are investigating the cause of the accident and reports of a Ford pick-up truck that may have been involved. At this time we cannot determine a cause though alcohol does not seem to be a factor,” said police chief Rubio Torres.

The vehicle was believed to have been traveling at approximately 60 miles per hour in a 55mph zone at the time of the accident.

Witnesses have stated that Ferrigno's car was being tailgated for a few miles by the Ford truck and at one point passed Ferrigno and slammed on the brakes causing Ferrigno's vehicle to flip several times after hitting a center lane divider.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the accident or those who may have a better description of the truck reportedly involved to please contact the police.

I checked to see something more official and all I'm seeing is that his "death" is nothing more than an online hoax. I hope this to be the case as he's too young to die. And if it is a hoax, I hope the person that started it is prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law.

We'll kick my ass for jumping on that and believing it.

Why would someone/site do that?

You know what's going to happen. Everything we look at on the net will need to be scrutinized, whether it's a cute video or bad news.

Is it fake?

Then we will start behaving with 'Don't Care attitude', because it can't be trusted.

This is the ONLY place I saw anything about Lou Ferrigno.  I actually assumed it was an old story (even if I didn't remember him dying) because there wasn't any other reaction.  Evidently no one else got fooled or it was a VERY small spreading hoax.

Not sure. But we should given how many of these are popping up on a daily basis. I really thought that Hef was gone. It was only researching a bit further that I realized that it was a Hoax.

After getting suckered into believing that Hef had kicked the bucket and talking with Mac, decided to merge his thread with mine and calling it....The Hoax Thread

ANd how fitting that the hoax thread should itself be a hoax, for you see... I don't really exist.  ...or do I?
