According to the Vermont State Police, an initial investigation indicated that Freeh had been driving south on Vermont Route 12 in a 2010 grey GMC Yukon when his vehicle went off the side of the roadway and struck a mailbox and a row of shrubs before stopping against a tree. Freeh, who was wearing his seatbelt at the time, was seriously injured.
State police say Freeh was transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire by helicopter to receive treatment for his injuries. No further details about Freeh’s condition was released.
Freeh served as the Director of the FBI from 1993 to 2001.
Current FBI Director James Comey released a statement Monday night, saying that, “the thoughts and prayers of the entire FBI remain with former Director Freeh and his family tonight.”
