HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Stonington state senator who suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2014 says he won’t run for re-election in November.

Democrat Andrew Maynard provided no reason Wednesday for his decision not to seek a sixth two-year term, only saying in a written statement that it’s been an honor to serve in the Senate on behalf of the residents of the 18th District.

Maynard’s health had come under renewed scrutiny in recent weeks following a Jan. 14 car crash in which police say he was driving the wrong way. He suffered a concussion and was unconscious when emergency crews arrived.

The 53-year-old Maynard in 2014 fell off an outdoor staircase at his home. He suffered serious injuries, including a condition that affected his speech.
