DescriptionFormer U.S. first lady Laura Bush is going public about a car crash in Midland, Texas, that claimed the life of a high school friend when she was 17.

In her new book, "Spoken from the Heart," she describes being wracked by guilt and losing her faith for many years after she ran a stop sign and slammed into another car in 1963.

Bush also suggests that she, her husband, and several members of their staff may have been poisoned during a G8 summit in Germany where they all fell mysteriously ill. The Secret Service investigated and doctors found only that they had a virus. "We never learned if any other delegations became ill, or if ours, mysteriously, was the only one," she wrote.

The book is scheduled to be released in May. The New York Times says it obtained a copy at a bookstore.
