Sweeping away rumors of his death, Seinfeld star and actor Wayne Knight tweeted he is alive and well.
The rumor spreading on social media was that Knight, who played Newman on NBC's hit show Seinfeld, died Saturday in a car accident along Route 446 at the New York–Pennsylvania border.
In response to the online attention, Knight tweeted on Sunday, "Does someone have to DIE to trend? Geez! Thanks for all the love everybody. I didn't know you cared. Glad to be breathing!"
An accident did happen near the Pennsylvania-New York state border Thursday morning in Eldred Township, leaving a woman dead and her two passengers critically injured after their vehicle collided with a semi-tractor-trailer, reports The Bradford (Pa.) Era.
