Sen. John Fetterman And Wife Sustain Minor Injuries In Car Accident

Democrat Sen. John Fetterman and his wife, Gisele, were involved in a car accident on Sunday, where their vehicle rear-ended another car on Interstate 70. The couple was taken to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment for minor injuries, according to the New York Post.

“On Sunday morning, John and Gisele were involved in a car accident with another driver. Out of an abundance of caution, they were evaluated at a local hospital. John was treated for a bruised shoulder and they were discharged that afternoon. They are doing well and happy to be back in Braddock,” Fetterman’s spokesperson said.

Maryland State Police reported that the accident occurred just before 8 a.m. Fetterman was driving a Chevrolet Traverse when it struck the rear of a Chevrolet Impala. “According to a preliminary investigation, a Chevrolet Traverse and a Chevrolet Impala were both traveling west on I-70 when for unknown reasons, the Traverse struck the rear of the Impala. The driver of the Traverse is identified as John Fetterman, 54, of Pennsylvania,” the police noted.

Both Fettermans and the passenger in the Impala were transported to War Memorial Hospital in West Virginia for medical attention. “No citations were issued. The crash investigation remains active and ongoing,” said the Maryland State Police.

Fetterman, 54, has had significant health issues, including a stroke in May 2022 while campaigning. The stroke has affected his speech and cognitive processing, requiring him to use speech-to-text devices in congressional hearings and daily interactions to transcribe spoken words.
