Kerry Kennedy arrested for alleged drug-driving
UNITED STATES: Kerry Kennedy, above, a member of the Kennedy dynasty, was charged with driving while impaired by drugs after she crashed into a tractor-trailer and fled, police said.
Kennedy is the seventh of 11 children of the late Senator Robert F Kennedy.
State police said she was found behind the wheel of her vehicle on the side of a road in Westchester, just north of New York City.
Authorities said emergency services callers reported the car was driving erratically and collided with a tractor-trailer. The car was damaged and had a flat tyre, police said.
A spokesman for Kennedy, who lives in nearby Bedford, denied that she had been driving under the influence of drugs.
“Kerry Kennedy voluntarily took breathalyser, blood and urine tests – all of which showed no drugs or alcohol whatsoever in her system,” Ken Sunshine said.
