Though Kerry Kennedy said herself after crashing into a truck on Interstate 684 last Friday that she might have accidentally taken Ambien instead of her thyroid medication, today she pleaded not guilty to drug-related charges. Though she failed several sobriety tests, no drugs were found in her system, and now Kennedy has an alternate theory: She may have suffered a seizure caused by an old head injury. “I want to apologize to the driver of the truck who I apparently hit and to all those I endangered while driving my car last Friday morning,” she said.
