Northern Ohio Congresswoman Involved In Crash In Toledo

(ONN) – Longtime northern Ohio Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur of Toledo was treated and released from a hospital after a car crash.

The Toledo Blade says Kaptur was driving through a construction zone on a street in Toledo on Wednesday when a backhoe working in a construction lane swung around into her lane, smashing the windshield on the driver’s side.

The newspaper says the 73-year old lawmaker was treated for minor injuries and is expected to be back on schedule Thursday.

Kaptur has been in Congress for 36 years and is currently the longest serving woman in the House.
