“I was in a car accident,” while adding, “This guy came out of a parking lot or some kind of side street like a maniac and he lost control of his car and he hit me.”
Robin Quivers said she was "almost killed" in a hit-and-run accident over the weekend near her summer home in New Jersey, reported E! "I was in a car accident," Howard Stern's radio sidekick explained to her boss on-air Monday. Police in Barnaget Township, N.J., where Quivers has a summer home, ticketed Robert Crockett, 50, after slamming his car into Quivers' Sunday, then leaving the scene. Cops cited Crockett for leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, failure to report an accident and operating an unregistered vehicle.
Quivers told Stern she was driving on New Jersey's Route 9 when the accident occurred. She tried to slow down, but that Crockett "spun around in a 360" and hit Quivers, then "backed up and drove off".
Quivers, 59, has been Stern's cohost and news anchor since 1981. Stern's show has aired on Sirius XM since 2006.
To hear Robin Quivers tell it, her weekend car crash was a near-death experience.

"I was in a car accident," she explained. Quivers said that Crockett then "backed up and drove off."
Stern congratulated her on living.
