Police: N.H. State Senator Hits Pedestrian

Portsmouth, N.H. — New Hampshire police said a state senator may have suffered a medical problem before her car went over a curb and struck a pedestrian in Portsmouth.

Police said the 67-year-old pedestrian was taken to the hospital Friday night with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.

She was released on Saturday.

Police said 71-year-old Sen. Martha Fuller Clark allegedly blacked out before the accident.

Authorities said she was alert and conscious when police arrived.

Police told the Portsmouth Herald that Fuller Clark was not being charged and showed no signs of impairment.

Fuller Clark also was involved in a single car crash in September. Police said she drove onto a median and hit a road sign.

She wasn’t cited in that crash.
