NORTH CASTLE, N.Y. — The driver of the truck struck by the ex-wife of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been issued a summons for leaving the scene of an accident.

Rocco Scuiletti, of Poughkeepsie, was sideswiped Friday by Kerry Kennedy's Lexus on Interstate 684 north of New York City.

She's pleaded not guilty to a driving while drug-impaired charge. Kennedy says doctors believe the accident was caused by a seizure stemming from an old brain injury.

State police told Newsday Westchester ( ) that Scuiletti knew he was involved in an accident and failed to report it. He faces up to a $250 fine or 15 days in jail. He couldn't be reached for comment. http://bit.ly/SJCcfl

She's the daughter of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.
