HAYWARD (KCBS) – California State Treasurer Bill Lockyer filed divorce papers Friday, the same day his wife Nadia reportedly crashed her Mini Cooper near the couple’s home in Hayward.
Hayward Police Sergeant Eric Krimm said Nadia Lockyer was served divorce papers for irreconcilable differences on Friday then crashed her car at 5:10 p.m.
She suffered minor injuries after crashing her Mini Cooper into a light pole just down the street from the Lockyer’s residence.
KCBS’ Doug Sovern Reports:
Krimm said she was not found to be under the influence, but was found at fault for making an unsafe turning movement and for being on her cell phone while driving.
After her air bag deployed, Krimm said a cooperative Mrs. Lockyer was taken to a local hospital where she was treated for minor injuries.
Lockyer’s spokesman, Tom Dressler, told KCBS the Treasurer’s desire is to have the divorce resolved as privately and amicably as possible, and with the best interest of the couple’s young son, Diego, in mind.
