Christie Hit Motorcyclist With Car In 2002, Wasn’t Ticketed

KRT/Newscom

The plot just keep getting thicker and thicker for former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie, the Republican nominee for Governor of New Jersey this year, and his bad driving record: In 2002, the Star-Ledger reports, Christie hit a motorcyclist while driving his car the wrong way on a one-way street — but was not ticketed.

“This was an unfortunate accident and just like a lot of us, Chris knows he can always be a better driver,” campaign spokeswoman Maria Comella told the paper.

Elizabeth Police Director James Cosgrove confirmed to the paper that Christie did identify himself as the U.S. Attorney. The Star-Ledger asked whether Christie’s position factored into the officer’s decision to not ticket him: “I don’t think I want to make that kind of deduction, but I think the facts speak for themselves.”
