The Fettermans were en route to Hancock, Maryland, a small town in the narrowest part of the state:

Following the crash both of the Fettermans were transported to War Memorial Hospital in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. Sen. Fetterman was treated for a bruised shoulder.

Since his stroke Fetterman has suffered from audio impairments that have resulted in his needing a phone or tablet-based transcriber to clearly understand colleagues and reporters while working on

This has resulted in the installation of a live closed captioning system at the Democrats , D.C. desk.

“According to a preliminary investigation, a Chevrolet Traverse and a Chevrolet Impala were both traveling west on I-70 when for unknown reasons, the Traverse struck the rear of the Impala,” a Maryland State Police spokesperson informed the Daily Mail.

“A passenger in the Traverse and the operator of the Impala were transported by ambulance to War Memorial Hospital in West for treatment of their injuries,” the spokesperson continued.

“No citations were issued,” they added, but noted that the “investigation remains active and ongoing.”

Fetterman's office confirmed to the Daily Mail that John and Gisele were involved in an accident on Sunday morning and were discharged that afternoon.
