AG Kane says effects linger from Oct. car crash

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane says a neurologist has confirmed she suffered a concussion and has cleared her to return to work, if she can, in about two weeks.

Kane’s office released new information Thursday about the Oct. 21 wreck, saying she is suffering headaches, nausea and fatigue and that her back and neck are sore.

Two of her agents also were injured when the driver made a turn and struck a parked car in the northeastern Pennsylvania borough of Dunmore.

Police say the driver told them he took his eyes off the road to pick up a fallen iPad from the floor.

Kane was a back-seat passenger in the state-leased vehicle, and wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. She’s been working from her Scranton-area home since the wreck.
