Police report on ex-FBI boss Louis Freeh's car crash says he didn't rest well the night before


MONTPELIER, Vermont — A formal police report into a car crash that injured former FBI Director Louis Freeh (LOO'-ee free) on a Vermont roadway says he told investigating officers he hadn't slept well the night before.

Freeh said in an interview with troopers referred to in the Uniform Crash Report filed with the Department of Motor Vehicles he had no recollection of the crash on Aug. 25 at 12:16 p.m. or even of leaving his Barnard home before it.

The troopers say there was no evidence a medical condition contributed to the crash so they concluded he fell asleep.

The report says Freeh suffered significant injuries to his left leg, left arm and face when his 2010 GMC Yukon went off the left side of Vermont Route 12 and hit a tree.
