WASHINGTON (AP) — Former District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry is out of the hospital after a traffic accident over the weekend.

Barry resumed his public appearances Sunday. The D.C. councilmember was taken to the hospital Saturday night after a minor crash on Pennsylvania Avenue in southeast Washington.

Police say the accident involved a car driving the wrong way down a one-day street when it collided with another vehicle. Police tell WNEW Radio that Barry was cited for failure to have insurance, driving on the wrong side of the street and driving with expired tags.

Barry’s spokeswoman LaToya Foster says Barry suffered a hypoglycemic attack with low blood sugar levels and was disoriented when he collided with another car. The 78-year-old Barry is diabetic.
