Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul, killed his older sibling when he flipped his vehicle in California 65 years ago, according to newspaper cutouts.
It comes just days after Mr. Pelosi was charged with DUI.
According to a local news item from the time, Paul Pelosi was 16 when he drove his vehicle into San Mateo early in the morning of Feb. 22, 1957, the Daily Mail reports.
His younger brother, David Pelosi, 19, was allegedly strangled by a neck brace he was wearing as a result of a previous neck fracture, according to the San Francisco Examiner.
Paul, who was injured in the accident and suffered a fractured collarbone, sought assistance after escaping his automobile, according to the document.
When questioned by the police, Paul told them he tried to slow down but quickly lost control of his vehicle.
“The car veered across the road, bounced back from a small embankment, climbed 20 feet up another, spun around and somersaulted simultaneously and ended upside down on the shoulder with both youths underneath,” the report said.
His brother was pronounced dead after arriving at Mill Memorial Hospital in San Mateo.
