Maine Governor Injured in Auto Accident With State Vehicle

February 9, 2004

Gov. John Baldacci was injured in a car accident with a state vehicle on Feb. 4. Baldacci suffered a broken rib and bruises, but was able to leave the hospital unassisted the same day as the accident. Baldacci was being driven by his state police bodyguard, when their SUV struck a car, went off an interstate and rolled onto its side, officials said. The governor's bodyguard was at the wheel when he lost control on Interstate 295 in Bowdoinham. The driver of the other car was not injured. The first-term Democrat was on his way from Augusta, the state capital, to Portland to attend a Chamber of Commerce breakfast. Investigators said the bodyguard lost control on a patch of ice.
