Oakland Mayor Jean Quan was involved in a traffic accident Sunday evening just a week after being photographed with her phone to her ear while driving, reports the Mercury News (photo from Mayor Quan reelection campaign).
Police say the Mayor was rear ended by a driver who ran a red light and hit the left rear of the city vehicle Quan was driving.
No one was injured.
Quan denies being on the cell phone at the time of the accident, although the Mercury News interviewed a witness who said Quan appeared to be looking down at the time of the accident.
KGO-TV talked to the other driver involved in the accident. You can hear her version of the story below.
