Family Reportedly Believe She Suffered a Seizure

Kerry Kennedy
'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.

So, seizure is the new DUI? Test her for prescription meds. Last I checked, the bottle (and doctors) advise you do not operate a vehicle or heavy machinery for 2 weeks after you start on the medication, because the side effects can cause seizures, blackouts, death, impairment, blurry vision, hearing loss, drowsiness...

She was close to Robert's ex-wife Mary. Could be they are prepping for trying to ruin her reputation if she doesn't tow the line?

After all, they found no drugs in her system which means, she took the Ambien the previous night as directed and there was none in her system.

So, at this point, all we have is a woman who was pulled over but nothing was wrong with her. hmmm. Watch your back Kerry.

Wouldn't it be refreshing to hear one Kennedy say I broke the law and must pay for my mistake. I know it will never happen but one can dream.

Tests showed no sign of drugs or alcohol. They are Kennedy's and just because the test shows no sign doesn't mean she wasn't high or drunk. The Kennedy's are well known for the cover-up of bad publicity.

Fine, blame it on a medical event. Yank her license for life!!!! A DUI would be easier for her. I don't know many epileptics who have a license.

The makers of Ambian need to plaster a warning label on it's bottle "Warning! Do not take if you are, or think you might be, a member of the Kennedy family".

"The driver of the tractor-trailer that she hit pleaded not guilty earlier this month to leaving the scene of an accident. He said he continued his trip because his truck was undamaged."

No, he said he pulled over when it was safe, couldn't find a scratch on his rig, and she was long gone, so he went on his way.

He was charged with leaving the scene when it is not only stupid but prohibited to park a semi on the shoulder that is not disabled.

The rationale for the charge seems to be he was supposed to wait there anyway to show cops his lack of evidence for any crash and be charged for parking on the shoulder and making a false statement and being a truck driver after sundown.
