McCrory uninjured in post-Super Bowl car accident

Posted February 8, 2016

— Gov. Pat McCrory was involved in a car crash Sunday night after attending the Super Bowl in Santa Clara, Calif.

McCrory was a passenger in a California Highway Patrol vehicle at the time of the wreck. While he had minor pain from the incident and the vehicle was totaled, McCrory was able to continue to his destination in another vehicle, officials said.

According to WBTV, the crash happened in San Jose along Highway 237. Highway Patrol officers said that McCrory’s vehicle was rear-ended by a Mercedes.

Another person who was in the vehicle was taken to a local hospital to be checked, WBTV said.

"We were very fortunate, and while I am still proud of the Carolina Panthers, this puts the game in proper perspective," McCrory said in a statement. "I want to thank the California Highway Patrol and EMS for their professionalism and quick action."

    Could WRAL check how much if any of his superbowl trip was paid for with tax dollars and if tax dollars were used what was done to justify the trip being state funded and who else attended with him.
