http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/aug/3/marion-barry-hospitalized-after-head-collision-dc/ So I guess it is called a "hypoglycemic attack pipe" now.... Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry was taken to a hospital Saturday night after he drove a vehicle into an oncoming lane of traffic and was involved in a wrong-way car crash on Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast. Mr. Barry’s spokeswoman Latoya Foster said the 78-year-old, now a D.C. Council member representing Ward 8, “had a hypoglycemic attack, became disoriented and had a minor fender bender.” Ms. Foster said both the diabetic former mayor and his passenger, who she did not identify, were checked out for injuries. “He’s OK,” she said of Mr. Barry. Police sources said Mr. Barry crossed into the opposite lane of traffic and hit an oncoming car in the 2700 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast. D.C. Police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said that the driver of the other car complained of injuries, but she did not have any details on the condition of that person or whether the driver was taken to a hospital. It was unclear how fast the vehicles were traveling when they collided. Ms. Crump said the cause of the crash was being investigated. Mr. Barry tweeted late Saturday that he was “fine.” He followed that with tweets Sunday saying he had been released from the hospital and was resting. “Last night my blood sugar level dropped, which caused me to become disoriented and as a result, I was involved in a very minor fender bender,” Mr. Barry said on Twitter.
