Marion Barry taken to hospital after wrong-way collision on Pennsylvania Avenue
The Washington Times ^ | August 3, 2014 | Andrea Noble

Posted on 08/03/2014 8:36:14 AM PDT by jazusamo

Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry was hospitalized Saturday night after he drove a vehicle into an oncoming lane of traffic and was involved in a wrong-way car crash on Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast.

Mr. Barry’s spokeswoman Latoya Foster said the 78-year-old, now a D.C. Council member representing Ward 8, “had a hypoglycemic attack, became disoriented and had a minor fender bender.”

Ms. Foster said both the diabetic former mayor and his passenger, who she did not identify, were being checked out for injuries.

“He’s OK,” she said of Mr. Barry.

He was on the phone with his wife.

She called to warn him there was a wrong way driver on Pennsylvania Ave.

He told her, 'It's not just one, there are hundreds of them!!!'

They did the Heimlich maneuver on him and the crack pipe popped out on the second attempt.

Seems Barry has a hard time distinguishing between a head on collision and a fender bender.

“They did the Heimlich maneuver on him and the crack pipe popped out on the second attempt. “

Inquiring minds want to know, from just which “orifice” did the crack pipe exit?
Maybe it was the “Hinelick Maneuver.”

Not to worry, folks. If Marion Barry dies, he will still be voting Democrat for the next 150 years from the grave.
