's car crash and subsequent DWI arrest might have had nothing to do with drugs and instead could have have occurred because she suffered from a seizure -- this according to a new report.

Kennedy was arrested Friday AM after driving erratically and crashing into a tractor trailer on I-684 in NY. Police charged with driving while impaired by drugs after she allegedly admitted to taking an Ambien.

But a source tells the NY Post that the Kennedy family now believe the 52-year-old may have suffered a seizure instead. The source says, "She does not remember how she got to the side of the road. All she remembers is feeling very woozy."

The source adds that the Kennedy family now fears an undiagnosed medical condition may be to blame.

Following the incident, the source claims Kennedy's blood and urine tests (taken at Northern Westchester Hospital) showed no signs of drugs or alcohol. But the cops are still waiting on their own blood tests, which should be available shortly.

Seizure, translated in 'rich and famous' speak = drug/alcohol overdose.

SHE said she took Ambian yet the "hospital tests" showed "no drugs or alcohol in her system", remind me to never be treated at Northern Westchester Hospital. They can't find drugs when somebody ADMITS to taking them.

Why not just use the "Twinkie" defense Kerry? Say you just polished off a boatload of Twinkies and the sugar rush jacked up your driving. Why does her ex husband and Sandra Lee have custody of her kids? That alone speaks volumes.

Message to both Bobby Jr. and Kerry: Get your shiat together. You are no longer teenagers, start acting like responsible adults. There is only so much blame you can foist onto the fact that your dad was murdered when you were kids. Tragic yes, but many people have lost parents in childhood, you two are not the only peeps in the world to have tragic things happen to them. Get some professional and try to behave as if your dad is looking over your shoulder. Live your life in a manner that would make your dad proud of you, not embrassed to claim you as his offspring.

If she is actually telling the truth, and it's not a Kennedy cover-up, *cough cough* it's not a seizure, it's Ambien. There are a LOT of cases of people sleepwalking, sleep binge eating, sleep driving. There have even been deaths because of overdosing while sleepwalking (they take an Ambien, go to bed, and take more while sleepwalking). The drug seriously needs to be re-evaluated

Well-known side effects of Ambien are sleep-walking, sleep-eating, sleep-driving.... this is medical fact.

Duh...That's one of the main issues with Ambien. People are getting into vehicles while still half asleep. They are literally sleep driving, and don't remember even getting in a car. So that other undiagnosed medical problem is b.s.! If your going to take anything that could impare you, be ready to pay the price when you get behind the wheel!!!

I was there when my S-I-L had a seizure for the first time. Luckily she wasn't driving but believe me, it is a bizarre thing to witness! Very scary.

Yeah, she seized a bottle of booze and poured it down her throat.

One thing you can't expect from a Kennedy is honesty.

It occurs to me that had Ms. Kennedy not thrown her friend Mary beneath the bus and talked about how tortured Mary was by her 'demons' (alcohol). Police may have let Kennedy go. They have used up all the sympathy America had to offer. Good job cops. Keep the dangerous drivers off the road. No matter who they are.

These Kennedy's are all booze swillin, pill popping bullsh!t artists. Don't forget where Joe kennedy made his money... Smuggling booze.
