State Sen. Barbara Buono, the probable Democratic gubernatorial nominee, was injured in an accident last night, suffering minor cuts to her face, according to a law enforcement source.
Buono was leaving a Democratic meeting at the Imperial in Franklin Township and riding in the back of a car when the accident occurred about 8 p.m. Nobody else in the car was injured.
She was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, where she was treated and released, according to the source. The investigation is ongoing.
Buono Campaign Spokesman David Turner issued a statement this morning.
"Around 8 p.m. last night, Senator Buono was being driven home from an event by a staff assistant. As her driver attempted to turn, he collided with an oncoming car," Turner said.
“Neither driver suffered any injuries. Senator Buono, who was riding in the back seat and wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, suffered a small cut to her forehead. Senator Buono was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure. There she was treated and released shortly thereafter. She is back at work this morning.
“Senator Buono is extremely grateful that no one was seriously injured in the accident, and thanks everyone who has called, emailed, or messaged their thoughts and good wishes.”
