Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) was traveling at a “high rate of speed” ahead of the car accident he was involved in that took place in Maryland over the weekend, according to a Maryland State Police report.

The report, obtained by The Hill, said that a witness observed that Fetterman’s vehicle was “traveling at a high rate of speed, well over the posted speed limit,” when the car passed her on Sunday morning. Fetterman, who was driving a Chevrolet Traverse, rear-ended a Chevrolet Impala “shortly” after passing the witness, according to the report.

The report noted the highway’s speed limit was 70 mph and that both vehicles involved were towed away from the scene. Fetterman, his wife and the driver of the other vehicle were all transported to a hospital following the crash, the police report said.

It also lists that Fetterman was “at fault” for the incident.

Fetterman’s office said that Fetterman and his wife, Giselle, were “doing well” after they were involved in a car crash on Sunday morning. The office said they were both evaluated at a local hospital and were discharged that afternoon after Fetterman was treated for a bruised shoulder.

Fetterman thanked people for their well wishes in a video on the social media platform X earlier this week.

“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,” he wrote.

Maryland State Police said in a statement earlier this week the “crash investigation remains active and ongoing,” noting no citations were issued.

The Hill has reached out to Fetterman’s office about the police report.

Miranda Nazzaro contributed reporting.
