Last night the motor vehicle crash (these are crashes NOT accidents!!!!) was described as minor. Well, it seems that it wasn’t minor for the governor. He was severely injured but all trauma definitions. He is at an excellent medical center with great Trauma Surgeons. He will be well cared for. Please pray for his speedy recovery (this will not be something that he will hop up from. He should be in the 7 – 14 days from what I have read. He will not be back to “normal” for a couple of months if there are no complications.) This is significant trauma. He is 60 years old. He is not a young man. It will take some time for him to heal.
Gov. Jon S. Corzine was apparently not wearing his seat belt as required by law when his official SUV crashed into a guardrail, leaving the governor hospitalized in critical condition, a spokesman said Friday.
A state trooper was driving Corzine to a meeting between Don Imus and the Rutgers women’s basketball team Thursday night when another vehicle, swerving to avoid a pickup truck, hit the governor’s SUV and sent it into the guard rail on the Garden State Parkway.
The crash broke the governor’s leg, six ribs, his sternum and a vertebra. Authorities were searching for the pickup truck driver blamed for causing it. (more…)
