BARNARD, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police say drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the single-car crash that seriously injured former FBI director Louis Freeh.
Meanwhile, the New Hampshire hospital where Freeh was taken following the Monday crash in Vermont say they can’t acknowledge that Freeh is a patient there.
Freeh, who led an investigation into the child sex abuse scandal at Penn State and issued a scathing report, was alone in his SUV and wearing a seatbelt when he drove off the road shortly after noon Monday. He struck a mailbox and a row of shrubs before coming to a stop on the side of a tree.
The accident happened in Barnard, a small town about 120 miles northwest of Boston.
No one else was hurt.
