wayne-knight-seinfeld-death-rumor-gi.jpgWord on the street is that Wayne Knight, who played Newman on "Seinfeld," died in a car accident on the New York/Pennsylvania border over the weekend. Well, word on the street is wrong.

Knight took to Twitter to clarify that he is in fact hale and hearty, and to lament that it took a death rumor for people to pay attention to him.








The initial rumor says Knight died on March 15 in an accident along Route 446. According to The Bradford Era, a car accident did take place in that location. A woman died and her two passengers were critically injured after their car collided with a semi-tractor-trailer.

Knight currently stars on "The Exes" on TV Land.
