“Out of an abundance of caution, they were evaluated at a local hospital,” the spokesperson said. “John was treated for a bruised shoulder, and they were discharged that afternoon. They are doing well and happy to be back in Braddock,” their western Pennsylvania town.

The Maryland State Police told JNS that troopers from the Hagerstown barrack responded shortly before 8 a.m. on Sunday “to the area of westbound Interstate 70 at Interstate 68 for a report of a two-vehicle crash.”

The police’s preliminary investigation suggests that “a Chevrolet Traverse and a Chevrolet Impala were both traveling west on I-70 when for unknown reasons, the Traverse struck the rear of the Impala.”

“The driver of the Traverse is identified as John Fetterman, 54, of Pennsylvania,” the Maryland State Police told JNS. “A passenger in the Traverse and the operator of the Impala were transported by ambulance to War Memorial Hospital in West Virginia for treatment of their injuries.”

“No citations were issued,” it added. “The crash investigation remains active and ongoing.”

“Not the best way to spend our 16th wedding anniversary but we’re doing well,” Fetterman wrote. He added that he is treating his injuries with frozen peas “from the Teeter” and Tylenol.
