Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson reportedly injured from an automobile accident is fake news. There is no truth to reports that Carlson succumbed to injuries from serious head on collision while heading home. Carlson is an American political commentator for Fox News. Carlson is also co-founder and former editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller website and formerly hosted MSNBC’s Tucker and co-hosted CNN’s Crossfire.
Where did this fake story originate? The America’s Last Line of Defense published an article On May 13, 2017, reporting that the Fox News Channel host had been critically injured in an automobile accident.
Fox News’ bright and shining primetime star, Tucker Carlson, was involved in a hit and run head-on collision on his way home from his live broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” which is shot at Fox News in New York City. NYC Police Sargeant Michael O’Leary told reporters that while he couldn’t confirm the identity of the driver, a well-known news anchor was rammed in what looked like an act of violence and not an accident.
EMT’s on the scene were heard on their radios describing the man as Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson after retrieving his wallet. He was transported to Saint Mary’s where he is said to be in critical condition and awaiting surgery. No other information is available from the hospital, which also refuses to release anything until they get the OK from police.
