WAKEFIELD (AP) – Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan has been involved in minor car accident in Wakefield just hours after attending her brother’s manslaughter trial in the death of their father.

Wakefield police said the accident happened on New Salem Street Thursday afternoon. No injuries were reported.

WBZ-TV’s Jim Armstrong reports.

A spokeswoman for Kerrigan said she had a problem with a loose tire on her car and “she’s just fine.”

No other information was immediately available.

Kerrigan’s mother, Brenda Kerrigan, testified for a second day Thursday as a defense witness for her son Mark Kerrigan. Prosecutors say 70-year-old Daniel Kerrigan died after a violent struggle with his son. The family says he had a longstanding heart condition and Mark was not to blame for his father’s death.
