New Hampshire police say a state senator may have suffered a medical problem before her car went over a curb and struck a pedestrian in Portsmouth.

Police say the 67-year-old pedestrian was taken to the hospital Friday night with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.

Police told the Portsmouth Herald that 71-year-old Sen. Martha Fuller Clark allegedly blacked out before the accident.

Authorities say she was alert and conscious when police arrived.
