Sen. Corzine apologizes for not wearing his seat belt

Who's apologizing now?

Sen. John Corzine, D-NJ, for not wearing a seat belt. Hey, what's this we hear about a love triangle involving his driver, who supposedly got distracted by a text message and caused the accident?

In the days and hours leading up to the crash that critically injured Gov. Jon Corzine, the governor's driver received a flurry of angry communications from the husband of a woman with whom the driver was romantically entangled.

Leaving Cooper University Hospital in a wheelchair, Corzine paused to thank his many well-wishers, say again that he feels "blessed" and apologize for failing to buckle up on April 12, when the Chevy Suburban in which he was riding crashed on the Garden State Parkway.

"I understand I set a very poor example for a lot of young people, a lot of people in general,'' Corzine said. "I hope the state will forgive me."
