Sen. John Fetterman and Wife Injured in Maryland Car Crash


Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) and his wife Gisele were hospitalized following a car accident on a Maryland highway Sunday morning.

A spokesperson from Fetterman’s office confirmed that the couple is now home in Braddock, Pennsylvania, and are “doing well” after being treated at War Memorial Hospital in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.

“On Sunday morning, John and Gisele were involved in a car accident with another driver,” the spokesperson stated. “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 had reportedly been driving a Chevrolet Traverse at the time, which rear-ended a Chevrolet Impala while traveling on I-70 in Hancock, Maryland, located near the borders of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, a spokesperson with the Maryland State Police confirmed to the Daily Mail.

The spokesperson added that “a passenger in the Traverse and the operator of the Impala were transported by ambulance” to War Memorial Hospital for treatment of their injuries.

Fetterman, serving his first term as a senator for Pennsylvania, has faced a range of health issues. In May 2022, then-Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Fetterman revealed he had suffered a stroke. He went on to win his election in November against Republican candidate Mehmet Oz.

Months later, in February 2023, it was revealed that Fetterman had checked himself into a hospital for treatment of clinical depression. Since then, he has spoken publicly about his condition.
