Reports Of Samuel L. Rivers Impending Demise Were Greatly Exaggerated After Car Crash

Mount Vernon – Shortly after leaving a press conference at City Hall, Mount Vernon Exposed publisher Samuel L. Rivers was in a car accident, 5:00 PM, Tuesday afternoon. Reports quickly began to surfaces that Rivers had a stroke and then crashed his car. As the story got around, that he was at Jacobi Medical Center in the North Bronx. Reports of his impending demise were greatly exaggerated, especially when word got out he was in ICU.


Sam River who authors many controversial articles about Mount Vernon officials and politicians, tried for get Ernest Davis out of office with an Article 78, when he was Mayor and is one of the most critical voices opposing the actions of current mayor, Richard Thomas and is known for following members of the Thomas Administration, videotaping their every move, had some praying for his recovery and many others laying and preying for his downfall.

Never one too far from controversy the Community Activist and local blogger’s car was torched in front of his house on Rockledge Avenue, just before 11:00 P.M, on Friday, October 7, 2016. He blamed members of the Thomas Administration, who he alleged were retaliating against him for stories he posted that did not want to get out. The ATF gathered the charred remained from the front of his house and were said to be investigating the incident. He was also arrested while videotaping a traffic stop November 2014.

But Rivers did not have a stroke, didn’t break any bones, in fact, he is just fine. As is often the case, the true story is not as exciting as the rumors. Mr. Rivers spilled coffee in his lap while driving and crashed his car. He bumped his head in the accident and was kept at Jacobi for observation.

Councilman André Wallace spent a few hours with Rivers, Wednesday morning and assures everyone he is ok. Wallace informed BW, he is fine just being held for observation because he bumped his head.

It is still unknown if his car is totaled, all we could find out was there was some front end damage, how bad we still do not know. So despite the rumors, Sam Rivers is ok, he did not have a stroke and he will be back to his usual antics shortly! Normally this would not be a news brief in BW, be since the phone has been ringing off the hook, I figured I would write it once to alleviate having to tell the story 100 more times.

BOYCOTT FOR BLACK LIVES T-SHIRT  BUY HERE

Colin Kaepernick has committed no crime other than spoke truth to power about the injustices to black people in the United States. For this, he should not be punished by blackballing him from the game of football. If people want change, we must Boycott! It’s up to us to protest but not just physically; with our money. If black lives don't matter to them, then our black dollars shouldn't either.
