Kerry Kennedy, the former wife of Gov.Andrew M. Cuomo, was arrested and charged with driving while impaired by drugs on Friday morning after she collided with a tractor-trailer in Westchester County and left the accident scene, the State Police said.
Ms. Kennedy, through a spokesman, denied the charge.
“Kerry Kennedy voluntarily took Breathalyzer, blood and urine tests — all of which showed no drugs or alcohol whatsoever in her system,” the spokesman, Ken Sunshine, said. “The charges were filed before the test results were available.”
