BARNARD, Vt. — Sep 3, 2014, 2:14 PM ET Associated Press
Former FBI Director Louis Freeh likely fell asleep at the wheel and drifted across the road before the car crash last week that severely injured him in Vermont, state police said Wednesday.
Freeh was interviewed and does not remember why he crashed in Barnard on Aug. 25, Vermont State Police said. His lack of memory, the circumstances of the crash and lack of a mechanical problem means Freeh likely fell asleep, police said, while acknowledging that they may never know what happened.
Police have said drugs and alcohol weren’t factors in the crash and Freeh, who lives in Wilmington, Delaware, will not be charged.
Freeh, 64, was airlifted to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, after the accident. The hospital on Wednesday would not provide any information about his condition.
