DWI Charge Filed After Edwards' Daughter Rear-Ended

Posted January 14, 2008

— The older daughter of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was rear-ended in downtown Chapel Hill on Friday, police said.

Cate Edwards' car was struck from behind on Rosemary Street at Roberson Street by a car driven by Carol Small. Small, 45, was charged with driving while impaired, police said.

Edwards wasn't injured in the wreck, police said.

The report didn't list a blood alcohol level for Small. She wasn't injured, but was also cited for failing to reduce speed and operating a vehicle in a negligent manner. She was scheduled to make a court appearance Monday.

Edwards' presidential campaign is based in Chapel Hill. Campaign spokesman Eric Schultz described the accident as minor.
