Marion Barry out of hospital after crash in DC

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry is out of the hospital after a weekend traffic accident.

Barry resumed his public appearances Sunday. The D.C. councilmember was taken to a hospital Saturday night after a minor crash on Pennsylvania Avenue in southeast Washington.

Police say the accident involved a car driving the wrong way and colliding with another vehicle. Officer Araz Alali says Barry was cited for driving on the wrong side of the street, driving an unregistered vehicle and failure to have insurance.

Police say a person in the other vehicle complained of neck pain and was taken to a hospital.

Barry's spokeswoman LaToya Foster says Barry suffered a hypoglycemic attack with low blood sugar and was disoriented when he collided with another car. The 78-year-old Barry is diabetic.
