Councilman James Sanders In Accident

Councilman James Sanders (D-Laurelton) was in motor vehicle accident on Saturday afternoon. Sanders is currently in recovery at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City.
According to Sanders’ District Manager Donovan Richards, who was with the councilman at the time of the accident, they were returning from the Pocono Environmental Education Center in Pennsylvania. Richards, who sustained a head laceration, which required eight stitches, said the SUV traveling on Interstate 87 flipped over the median and rolled four times. He said the cause of the accident were slippery road conditions. A driver was also in the vehicle, but was uninjured.
Richards said they had to crawl out a window.
“The car was totaled,” Richards said. “I don’t know how we made it out.”
Michael Duncan, Sanders’ chief of staff said the councilman was released from the intensive care unit from Columbia Presbyterian.
“He is much better than we thought,” he said. Duncan went on to say that Sanders had no broken bones and hopes to be released in a matter of days.

Word has it that James and Donovan had a driver. Any information on the third person? Whose car was it?
