Bill Cowher took a hard hit Sunday afternoon when the Super Bowl-winning former head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers got into a car accident on Manhattan's Park Ave., hitting another vehicle that then crashed into scaffolding in the ritzy neighborhood.
Cowher, 56, was driving north on Park Ave.in his black Mercedes-Benz when a woman driving a Ford Fusion going in the same direction cut him off attempting to turn onto E. 92nd St. about 1:10 p.m., according to police and witnesses.
Cowher’s Mercedes hit the Fusion, which veered into scaffolding, cracking a pole and sending construction material tumbling down.
About half a dozen rescue vehicles and firetrucks showed up at the scene but nobody was hospitalized, police said.
Cowher currently works as an analyst for CBS’ “The NFL Today.” He coached the Steelers for 15 seasons, ending in 2007.
