Christie Not Issued Traffic Ticket After Accident That Injured Motorcyclist in 2002

“He did identify himself as U.S. attorney,” Cosgrove said…..

Asked whether Christie’s job title factored into the officer’s decision, Cosgove said, “I don’t think I want to make that kind of deduction, but I think the facts speak for themselves.”


Chris Christie’s past just keeps looking better and better to the Corzine camp. It seems that whenever Christie got himself into any trouble, he just had to envoke the name of the US attorney’s office and the position he held there to get out of any trouble.
Last night it was confirmed by the Star-Ledger, that Christie was not issued a traffic ticket after his BMW sedan was involeved in a traffic incident with a motorcyclist while speeding towards the swearing-in of the new Union County prosecutor in july of 2002:
Details about the accident came to light today as Democrats continue to hammer Christie over his driving record and accuse him of misusing his office as a federal prosecutor.

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

Christie was driving a rented BMW sedan and apparently had lost his way when he attempted to turn right onto a street that was one-way in the other direction, according to the police report. A motorcyclist, Andre Mendonca of Elizabeth, was riding towards Christie, and both men saw one another and put on the brakes, police said. Christie’s vehicle came to a stop, and the motorcycle then “fell on its side and slid into his vehicle,” according to the police report.

Mendonca was taken by ambulance to University Hospital in Newark, Cosgrove said. He said he did not know the extent of Mendonca’s injuries or “the seriousness of the condition.” Mendonca could not be reached for comment tonight.
