(UPDATE: 5/26/20 West has been released from hospital. More information is available here.)
Senior Fellow for the MRC, Lt. Col. Allen West, was injured in a motorcycle crash on Saturday.
According to a press release, West was on his drive back from the “Free Texas Rally” in Austin, TX, when he was involved in an accident when a car cut in front of him.
He is recovering, in stable condition, and has his family with him.
Local law enforcement reported that 'an unidentified vehicle changed lanes when unsafe in front of two motorcyclists. The motorcyclist attempted to brake, and the rear motorcyclist crashed into the front motorcyclist. Both motorcyclists were transported to Baylor Scott and White in Waco to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.'
Allen West is currently dealing with a concussion, several fractured bones, and multiple lacerations. Though these injuries are serious, Lt. Col. West stated, 'I am alive by the grace of God.'
West thanks the public for their well-wishes and support and asks for continued prayers.
