Quote:HARRISBURG — Attorney General Kathleen Kane was recovering at her home near Scranton from a concussion suffered in an automobile accident.

Kane's driver, a state agent, hit a parked car, her office said Friday.

The Oct. 21 accident happened when her driver reached down to pick up his iPad that fell off the seat and “took his eyes off the road for a second,” a police report said.

The accident occurred just before 7 a.m. on Chestnut Street in Dunmore, a borough in Lackawanna County, when Kane “was on her way to a morning appointment,” her spokeswoman Renee Martin said.

Kane, a passenger in the back seat, hit her head on the front seat, Martin said. She was not wearing a seat belt, though that's not required for back seat passengers.

The speed limit along Chestnut is 15 mph, police said. The accident report does not indicate the driver was speeding.

The Attorney General's Office released the accident report by the Dumore Police Department, though Martin said Kane's office did not plan to release anything until aides were told a reporter made inquiries. The report is public record.

Kane, 48, of Clarks Summit was riding in a state-provided 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe accompanied by her security detail. The report names the agents as Robert Ruddy and Patrick Reese, but it's unclear who was driving.

She needs to resign. An injury like that may effect her judgment.Ninja

He was obviously not doing anywhere near the speed limit if he 1) came upon the car so fast he didn't see it after only looking down for a "split second", and 2) Kane was thrown forward with enough momentum to cause a brain injury on a padded headrest.

Why lie about it? Oh that's right.

Tornadoes just don't seem to make it this far east for some reason. Pity.

I believe she will now have to be monitored closely for signs of traumatic brain injury.

Oh, wait . . . . . . Angel
