Patrice Tierney, wife of Congressman John Tierney, was reportedly injured in a vehicle accident Tuesday morning when another car struck hers from behind.
Tierney campaign manager Matt Robison said that Patrice was treated for her unspecified injuries at Beverly Hospital and released mid-day.
"It appears that having her seat belt on prevented her injuries from being far more serious," Robinson said. "She and Congressman Tierney thank all who expressed their concern during the last few hours and appreciate the continued thoughts and prayers from friends, family and supporters."
Robinson said the campaign would adjust the congressman's schedule for a few days so he could care for his wife.
