State Sen. Martha Fuller-Clark won’t face charges in Nov. 1 crash
Fuller Clark’s attorney, Wilfred “Jack” Sanders of the law firm Pierce-Atwood, said Monday that Fuller Clark’s surrender of her license does not mean she intends never to drive again; she may seek reinstatement in the future, when she gets to the bottom of the medical issue that caused the accidents, he said.
Police said Fuller Clark was driving a silver Audi when her car went over the curb and struck Carla Dow, 67, of Kittery Point, Maine, on a Maplewood Avenue sidewalk.
Sanders said the senator is very sorry that it happened, and is glad the injuries Dow suffered were not severe.
“It’s unfortunate there were any injuries, but we certainly wish her well,” Sanders said.
“This was a pure accident,” Sanders said.
Dow refused to talk to the Union Leader Monday night, saying she had an attorney.
She would not give the name of her attorney.
She told police the area was poorly lit.
MacDonald said if Fuller-Clark had not surrendered her license in November, the department could have sent a letter to the Department of Motor Vehicles expressing its concerns and requesting a re-test.
