Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.

Analysis:

The message reports that Ray Lewis, the former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League, has broken both his legs in a traffic altercation that resulted in an accident. The message is fake, the news report is a hoax, only meant for entertainment.

If Ray Lewis had indeed met with an accident like that, then it would have easily made into the mainstream news, however, the only source to which all such messages link is a 'news report' of Global Associated News. Readers did not realize that this source is a fake news website with a fake, generic template, and is only meant for entertainment. There is no such thing as the Baltimore Highway Safety Authority. The story is simply fabricated and in fact auto-generated from time to time. Not many readers have noticed, this is also mentioned at the bottom of their website:

about this web site. FAKE... THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes! this story was dynamically generated using a generic 'template' and is not factual. Any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated by web site visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank 'non-specific' template for the purpose of entertainment. For sub-domain info, name removal requests and additional use restrictions: FakeAWish.com

FakeAWish website is in fact a celebrity fake news hoax generator. So Ray Lewis did not meet with any accident and did not break his legs. The fake news website Global Associated News did the same thing with many other celebrities in the past, which included Charlie Sheen, Eddie Murphy, Owen Wilson, Big Ben, and foot ball coach Cam Cameron among few others.
