Joe Miller Cited in Car Accident

GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller was cited in a car accident in his Alaska hometown, the New York Times reported.

No one was injured in the Aug. 27 crash, which involved three cars in Fairbanks, and Miller was issued a citation last week for failing to exercise due caution to avoid a collision, the Times reported Sunday. Alaska state troopers said Miller rear-ended a car, which then struck the car ahead of it.

The driver of the front car, Mark Alan Lewis, was cited for stopping on a highway. He told the Times he plans to contest the charge.

A spokesman for Miller did not respond to the Times’ requests for comment. Sen. Lisa Murkowski conceded the GOP primary to Miller on Aug. 31. The accident occurred between the primary on Aug. 24 and her concession.
