Report: Joe Bruno in Car Accident

brunoweb 1 Report: Joe Bruno in Car AccidentFormer Republican State Senator Joe Bruno was involved in an automobile accident and transported to an emergency medical facility in Colonie, according to a dispatch from the Breaking News Network.

The dispatch, forwarded to me by a reader, said the New York State Police are “investigating a motor vehicle crash injuring [Bruno],” who was “transported from the scene.”

A spokeswoman for the local state trooper’s office said she had no information about the incident, but did receive one prior inquiry about it.

Bruno was the Senate Majority Leader until his abrupt retirement late last year. He left to work in the private sector before being indicted on corruption and wire fraud, charges he denied at a press conference.

UPDATE: Bruno was treated for minor injuries at the hospital and released.
