Skip to comments.Howie Carr okay after Wellesley accident

Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr is apparently okay after crashing his car into a telephone pole in Wellesley Sunday morning.
According to police, the 57-year-old scribe and WRKO talk-show host was driving south on Wellesley Avenue, between Oakland and Forest streets, when his 2004 Acura suddenly crossed into the oncoming lane, hit a curb, and slammed into a telephone pole.
Wellesley police Sgt. Marie Cleary said Carr refused medical treatment and the car was towed. (The pole was split in half.) Carr was cited for a marked-lanes violation. "There were no signs of alcohol or anything suspicious of that nature," Cleary said yesterday. "It's a windy road there. I'm not sure if he was distracted for a moment."

Ping list please!!!
Let me guess: the accelerator got stuck.
Another TEXTING accident?????
How’s that multi-tasking working out 4 U?
he should have checked his car for ACORN tampering before he got in.
i dont let my kids go near it until i do, god bless them and keep them safe from the liberals
white light to him in his recovery
Maybe he dropped a Fried Clam.
Just decided to veer into the other lane?
pinging the Howie list, thanks..
will go on some radio boards...
thank god he’s ok. Conservatives in this country have suffered enough bad blows.
hmm—no sign of booze (I think Howie says he doesn’t drink these days)...distracted? windy? (Car problem? insert last name pun here... big shoe jokes galore on the chumpline today)
Don’t look at where you don’t want to go. Look at where you want to be in a few 10s of milliseconds.

The Carr that drives Boston home...drove into a pole...
Thank God he’s ok, should be an interesting Chump Line!
That shows you how dumb Kevin Weeks is.
If he wanted to get Howie he would of filled up a “Kelly’s Roast Beef” bag with C4.
Bad ice cube!
Glad he’s OK, and I’ll crank RKO at 3.
Maintenance crews leaving telephone poles in the middle of the road.
Trouble driving with the “big shoe”?
Ok, let me guess, he hit the accelerator instead of the brake, lost control and slammed into a pole? HOW OLD WAS THE DRIVER??????????? LOL! Today’s show is going to be good and the chumpline will be a hoot!
Will he be soliciting offers for a new “Graftmobile”?
He lost control of the wheel while trying to dip a fried clam into tar-tar sauce.
...or had a gob of Tar-tar sauce fall in his lap, LOL...
fried clams on Sunday ...morning...?
no sign of story in Howie’s own paper yet! Herald, where are you on this...?
lol Whitey was out in the street throwing traffic cones at him : )
Kelly’s is open until 1 am. Highly plausible.
Wait until he gets the bill for a new pole.....
Newton/Wellesley Hospital right down the street.
Well Howie’s not all that ancient (he’s exactly 10 years and 1 month older than me—I’ll be 48 in Feb. and he’ll be 58 in January—right around the time of that special election) in all honesty...but...we’ll have to hear his explanation. Take care of yourself Howie—I want to see that new book you’re writing and the one after that too!
The police on the scene found an open container of fried clams inside the car.
Is Howie Carr now a “Q Tip” driver candidate?
Be careful Howie.
We’ll know officially when he heads to the grocery store before the next snow storm and stocks up on a year supply of bread and milk.
He swerved to miss a porcupine in the road.
I hope he is OK. Rather worrisome in light of all of the problems he has had with the health as of late.
My guess is this was one of his freebie autos - my guess is he had to return it on Monday.
‘crossed over the double yellow line for unknown reasons’
The most written/heard excuse and the cause of many a head-on collision
He was dodging some Pugs in the road.
I wonder if he was on his way there?
What’d he do? Run into the Hillary Statue?..............
see post 31 for clues
qtip keyword LOL
So Howie Carr turned left of center and wound up in trouble with the law. That can be said of a lot of people down in Washington.
A Wellesley Wrench PING.
He’s gonna have to shuck and jive and shell out some dough................
They might need . . . A Wellesly Winch.
