Pennsylvania Democratic Senator John Fetterman and his wife Gisele were involved in a car accident Sunday morning, which resulted in their hospitalization.

The accident occurred in Hancock, Maryland, and resulted in the Fettermans being transported to War Memorial Hospital in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.

Senator Fetterman has a history of health problems, having suffered a stroke while running for the Senate in 2022. Since the stroke, he has dealt with audio issues that require him to use a phone-based transcriber or a tablet to communicate clearly with colleagues and reporters while working on Capitol Hill. To facilitate this, a live captioning system has been installed at the Washington, DC Democrats desk. At times, Fetterman has been known to give half-sentence answers to reporters' questions.

The crash happened on Interstate 70 westbound near Interstate 68, and authorities said both vehicles were traveling westbound on I-70 when, for unknown reasons, the Traverse collided with the rear of the Impala. The collision happened just before 8am on Sunday. A spokesman for the Maryland State Police said a passenger in the Traverse and the operator of the Impala were taken by ambulance to West Virginia War Memorial Hospital for treatment of their injuries. No citations were issued and the crash investigation remains active and ongoing.

A spokesperson for Fetterman's office confirmed the incident, explaining that “on Sunday morning, John and Gisele were involved in a car accident with another driver.” As a precaution, they were evaluated at a local hospital, and John was later treated for a bruised shoulder, and both were released later that afternoon. The spokesman added that the couple are “doing well” and are “happy” to be back at their home in Braddock, Pennsylvania.
