Former WCW star Buff Bagwell was involved in a serious car accident on Sunday, August 16, according to the Cobb County Police Department Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) Unit.
According to CobbCounty.org, Bagwell was transported to the Wellstar Kennestone Hospital with serious injuries and they believe that he was impaired by prescription medication when his 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe crashed while traveling on Cumberland Parkway.
The report notes that the car was traveling west and the driver lost control while negotiating a curve. The car collided the center median and metal fence before going across the eastbound lanes and colliding with the curb and into a free-standing bathroom at the Cobb County Transit bus station.
The collision remains under investigation and authorities are asking anyone with more information to call 770-499-3987. Sadly, this is just the latest in a long list of personal issues for Bagwell.
Back in May of this year, Bagwell posted a Cameo video that showed bruising on his face. He admitted to being drunk and said that the bruises on his face were a result of him tripping over his dog and hitting his face on the pavement.
Bagwell has spoken out about his substance abuse issues. During a 2015 interview on Steve Austin’s podcast, he said that sleep apnea was the reason why he had substance abuse issues. He was arrested in 2004 for being under the influence with Lortabs and Somas and he was arrested several more times since that time. He was also seriously injured during a car accident in 2012.
