New Jersey Governor in Critical Condition After Crash
New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine remains in critical condition Sunday due to injuries sustained in a Thursday car crash. Corzine's SUV was hit by another vehicle on the Garden State Parkway and then crashed into a guard rail. The AP reported that the 60-year-old governor has broken ribs, a severely fractured leg, a broken collarbone and breastbone, and a cut on his head.
The governor is being cared for at Cooper University Hospital.Corzine had surgery on his leg Saturday and will undergo another on Monday, according to CNN. Doctors have said that there are no signs of brain damage.
CNN also reported that the driver who apparently caused the accident has been found. A 20-year-old man, who's name has been withheld until charges are filed, was driving a red pickup that sverved in front of Corzine's car before it crashed.
However, the driver of the red pickup has said that he was not aware that he had been part of the Corzine crash. After avoiding an accident with a truck and sliding off the road, the man returned to the highway and continued to drive. The truck that he sverved to avoid was the one that hit Corzine's SUV.
