Sen. John Fetterman Found at Fault in Car Crash, No Citations Issued


Maryland authorities have found Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) at fault for a car crash that resulted in hospital admissions for him, his wife, and the driver of the other vehicle.

On Sunday morning, Fetterman was driving a Chevrolet Traverse along Interstate 70 in northwest Maryland when he rear-ended a Chevrolet Impala near the exit to I-68. According to the six-page police report obtained by USA Today, he was traveling “at a high rate of speed, well over the posted speed limit” of 70 mph.

Both vehicles were towed, and Fetterman, his wife Gisele, and the other driver, a 62-year-old Pennsylvanian woman, were taken to War Memorial Hospital in West Virginia by ambulance.

While at the hospital, Fetterman was treated for a bruised shoulder. He and his wife were discharged later that Sunday afternoon. Maryland State Police stated that no citations were issued and that the investigation is ongoing.

The couple, celebrating their 16th wedding anniversary, posted a video to X.

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

Neither Fetterman nor the other driver was tested for alcohol or substance use. Fetterman has been the junior senator from Pennsylvania since 2023. During his campaign, he suffered a stroke, and in February 2023, he checked himself into an inpatient program to assist in his struggle with clinical depression.
