Police say New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (KWOH'-mohz) ex-wife, Kerry Kennedy, has been arrested for driving while impaired by drugs and striking a tractor-trailer.

State police say the 52-year-old sister of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was found Friday morning behind the wheel of her disabled vehicle on the side of a road in Westchester, just north of New York City. Authorities say the car was driving erratically on Interstate 684 and collided with a tractor-trailer in the town of North Castle.

Kennedy's spokesman Ken Sunshine says she voluntarily took breathalyzer, blood and urine tests that showed no drugs or alcohol in her system. Sunshine says charges were filed before the test results were available.

Kennedy has been issued traffic tickets to be returned to the town of North Castle Court.
