SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468


  August 6, 2006


Former senator and astronaut John Glenn, 85, and his wife, Annie, 86, 
were in fair condition at Grant Medical Center in Columbus after being 
involved in a car accident. They were expected to be released today.

The couple were returning home from a fundraiser Friday night when Glenn 
tried to make a left turn onto a highway ramp and struck another car. 
Police cited Glenn for failure to yield, according to family spokesman 
Dale Butland.

Glenn, who served in the Senate from 1974 to 1999, piloted the first 
U.S. manned orbital mission in 1962. He went back into space in 1998 at 
the age of 77.
