FBI Director Says Louis Freeh Nearly Died After Car Crash

Washington – Officials say former FBI director Louis Freeh was near death in the wake of a car crash near his vacation home in Vermont last August.

Current FBI director James Comey and Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy offered insight for the first time into the crash near Freeh’s vacation home in Barnard.

They told the Burlington Free Press after a public appearance in Burlington, Vermont, last week that Freeh would have died from a severed leg artery had rescue crews not acted as quickly as they did freeing him from the wreck of his SUV on Aug. 25, 2014.

Freeh was airlifted to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, and spent weeks there recovering before being transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington.
