Lord Jesus Christ Hit By Car In MassachusettsS

A 50-year-old man named Lord Jesus Christ — yes, that's his real name — was hit by a car in Northampton, Massachusetts on Tuesday while trying to cross the street. We're guessing he forgave the driver.

Christ, who lives in Belchertown, was taken to the hospital after being hit in a downtown crosswalk. He was struck by a 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by 20-year-old Brittany Cantarella and suffered minor facial injuries.

Police have confirmed that his legal name is, in fact, Lord Jesus Christ. Cantarella was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk; Christ was treated and released from the hospital. Catholics in the Belchertown area are reportedly wearing wooden crosswalks around their necks until he returns.
