Leggett Still Resting At Home After Car Crash

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) was still resting at home this morning, after the car he was riding in Sunday night was hit by an allegedly drunk driver.

Leggett, 64, continues to feel some pain in his back, neck and hand, and his doctors "want him to take it easy," said spokesman Patrick Lacefield.

The county executive's recovery comes as he and top budget writers are making final decisions to close a projected $520 million shortfall for the fiscal 2010 spending plan that will be released on March 16. Leggett has been calling into budget meetings from home, Lacefield said.

The county-owned SUV Leggett was riding in Sunday was hit by a drunk driver who failed to stop at a red light at the intersection of Sandy Spring Road and Route 29, according to a police report.

Leggett, his wife, Catherine, and county security services Lt. Samantha Horwitz were taken to Laurel Regional Hospital and released. The driver was arrested after police said he failed a series of sobriety tests.

He has a security guard? Why did he need to be driving around in a county car on Sunday night?

Take your time and get better Ike. After May 19, you and I are going to make District 4 the shining star of Montgomery County. We should have landed the Hilton Headquarters for the Route 29 corridor---easy access to Thurgood Marshall BWI Airport!
