New York City, NY (PRWEB) September 06, 2013
Troubled mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner suffered another publicity setback last Saturday when the vehicle he was in was involved in a car accident. Weiner's office said no one was hurt.
The accident happened on FDR drive and involved two other vehicles, according to the New York Times (08.26.2013). A statement from a Weiner staffer said that the collision was a “chain reaction car accident,” implying that Weiner's car was not at fault, but police have not confirmed this.
Weiner was a passenger in the vehicle.
After the accident, Weiner was able to fly to Washington, DC for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King's “I Have a Dream” speech.
“It was certainly a minor accident,” Carter said. “But long-term neck and back injuries are common even in fender benders, and the damage to the vehicles is still an issue.”
Weiner's campaign has been on the rocks due to allegations that he sent unsolicited explicit sex messages to female staffers. Carter says that it's unlikely a politician would allow a car accident suit to go to court.
“At this point we don't even know if it's his driver's fault,” she said.
