Judge recovers from injuries in car accident

A Kanawha Circuit Court judge was traveling in North Carolina last month when she and her daughter were hit from behind by a swerving tractor-trailer. Judge Jennifer Bailey and her daughter were headed to a college orientation in South Carolina when the accident happened, and the two told the Daily Mail at first they thought they had escaped injury, but it was later after they got back to Charleston that they sought medical treatment. Judge Bailey is under doctor's orders now to rest and is off the bench for now. Another judge is handling her cases until she can return.
