Dwyer reportedly injured in car accident



Del. Don Dwyer was injured in a car accident Tuesday, his lawyer said.

David Fischer said a driver ran a red light on Magothy Bridge Road at Route 100 in Pasadena and hit Dwyer’s 2001 Cadillac sedan.

The crash took place just days after Dwyer was sentenced to serve 60 days in jail for driving and boating under the influence of alcohol on two separate incidents in 2012 and in August


The crash is the latest in a string of personal and professional setbacks for Dwyer, R-Pasadena.

In addition to 60 days in jail, which he must serve on consecutive weekends, Dwyer was sentenced Friday to three years of probation for his drunken boating misdemeanor. He has to complete his alcohol counseling program, attend Alcohol Anonymous meetings and submit to random testing to show he is not drinking.

He seriously was injured in the Aug. 22, 2012, accident near Cornfield Creek. He was piloting his 27-foot Baja powerboat when he and another boater collided.

In addition, Dwyer is going through a divorce, was assaulted by a neighbor a few days before his arrest in August, was cited for illegal crabbing in June and faces two lawsuits over credit card debt.

It’s been a rough year for Del. Dwyer. Hopefully he focuses on getting his personal life straightened out and doesn’t run for re-election.

  1. Poor Mr. Dwyer might need some money to get the curse lifted, though I’ve heard those ladies who tell fortunes are not to be trusted.
