Senator John Fetterman was treated for a bruised shoulder following a car accident over the weekend

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman was hospitalized for a bruised shoulder following a car crash Sunday morning, according to a statement from his Senate office. He was released from the hospital Sunday afternoon.

Fetterman, a Democrat, and his wife Gisele were “involved in a car accident with another driver,” the statement said. Both were evaluated at a local hospital and released within hours. The senator returned to his home in Braddock, Pennsylvania, and is expected to be back in the Senate this week to vote.

Fetterman’s spokeswoman Carrie Adams said the senator was driving the car and the accident occurred on Interstate 70 in Maryland. The condition of the other driver was unclear.

Fetterman, 54, suffered a stroke in May 2022 while campaigning. As a result, he still has trouble speaking fluently and processing spoken conversations quickly. During congressional hearings and routine conversations, he often uses devices to transcribe spoken words in real time.
