The 32 year-old, crashed his car into a wall at a speed of nearly 180 mph (290 kmph) after hitting a slick patch on the track. Jason Priestly suffered a concussion, a broken nose, a broken spine (but not paralysis) and fractures in both feet. Jason has since had surgery, left the hospital and is undergoing physical therapy.

    Couple Newz

Jennifer Lopez and her husband Cris Judd separated in June of 2002. Ben and Jennifer got to know each other last winter while shooting the flick Gigli.
