2 mins read

A Democrat senator caused a rear-end collision over the weekend, resulting in all involved being taken to the hospital for treatment.

The crash occurred shortly before 8 a.m. on Sunday near the intersection of I-70 and I-68 in Hancock, Maryland.

According to local reports, Fetterman was behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Traverse when he collided with the rear of a Chevrolet Impala.

Both Fetterman and his wife, Gisele, were transported to a hospital for treatment of their injuries. The senator suffered a minor shoulder injury.

The Impala driver was also hospitalized via ambulance; however, no update was provided on their condition.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation, with police yet to release an official statement.

“On Sunday morning, John and Gisele were involved in a car accident with another driver,” Fetterman’s office said in a statement.

“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 shared a video on Monday on his X (formerly Twitter) account, confirming that he and his wife were both well and back at home.

“You might have heard G and I were in a car accident yesterday. Thank you all for the well wishes,” Fetterman captioned the video.

“Not the best way to spend our 16th wedding anniversary but we’re doing well and happy to be back home in Braddock with the family.”

In the video, the senator was seen using a bag of frozen peas as an ice pack and holding a bottle of Tylenol for pain relief.

“You got an F for this anniversary,” his wife responded to the post.

Recently, Fetterman sparred with late-night host Bill Maher about President Biden’s reelection chances on Maher’s show.

“He’s actually the only American that’s ever beat [former President Trump] in an election,” Fetterman remarked on friday’s episode of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” when asked if Biden is the “best one for” Democrats “to put forward.”

Fetterman remains firmly in Biden’s corner, who he said was “the only Democrat that could win.”

“I do believe Joe Biden has that ability to win,” Fetterman reiterated to Maher. “And we have a great — we have a great bench, but I think it’s a very distinct kind of situation right now.”

Maher said he was surprised by Fetterman’s staunch support of the president. “I’m not on the same page there, but okay,” he commented. “I mean, it’s probably gonna be Joe Biden and I’ll vote for him.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Maher asked Fetterman, who was wearing his standard uniform of a hoodie and shorts, what the deal was with his wardrobe.

“I’m not making a statement,” the Pennsylvania lawmaker explained. “I am into comfort, and I don’t have to iron, and it’s hard to find suits,” he said in reference to his 6-foot, eight-inch stature.

“I never understood why anyone thought that was interesting,” he added. “More people seemed concerned about me wearing a hoodie on the floor than Senators taking bribes.”
