Governor of New Jersey in Serious Car Accident

I was listening to the radio just now it said that the Governor of New Jersey John Corzine was in a serious car accident minutes ago. Apparently his motorcade was cut off by another driver and the Governor and a state trooper are injured and are being Medivac-ed out.
A spokesman said that his injuries are not life threatening.

Governor Jon Corzine was injured in an auto accident on the Garden State Parkway late this afternoon, his spokesman said.

"The governor sustained injuries. They were not life-threatening," said spokesman Anthony Coley.

Coley said there are reports that a trooper also was injured in the accident at about 5:45 p.m. near milepost 43 in Galloway Township, Atlantic County. The governor was traveling in a two-car motorcade.

An administration official said Corzine suffered a broken leg and was taken from the scene by helicopter. He was flown to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, an operator at the hospital said.
