Rep. John Tierney's wife involved in car crash

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) Congressman John Tierney's wife was treated at Beverly Hospital on Tuesday after being involved in a car accident.

A spokesperson for Tierney's campaign for re-election released a statement regarding the crash. He says Patrice Tierney's car was hit from behind by another car. She was treated and released from the hospital by Tuesday afternoon.

The spokesperson says that her seat belt prevented her from sustaining more serious injuries.

Patrice Tierney pleaded guilty to tax fraud in 2010 for her involvement in her brother's illegal offshore gambling ring. The scandal landed her a month-long prison sentence. Her brother was recently found guilty of racketeering and another brother is a fugitive.

Tierney has denied knowing of the illegal activity. Prior to Congressional debates, Tierney's camp laid ground rules insisting no questions be asked about his family.
