“Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery,” Hammill added.
Earlier this year Pelosi was sentenced to five days in jail and was fined thousands of dollars for driving under the influence.
Prosecutors filed the case as a misdemeanor because of injuries to the 48-year-old driver of the SUV. They have declined to identify the driver, saying the person has requested privacy.
Police have yet to release a motive for the attack. This story will be updated.
