Former Florida US Rep. Allen West is praising God for His protection after he sustained serious injuries during a motorcycle accident in Waco, Texas Saturday afternoon.
The former congressman was airlifted to a hospital and is in stable condition, according to a post on West’s Facebook page.
“On his drive back from the ‘Free Texas Rally’ in Austin, TX, Lt. Col. Allen West 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,” the post reads.
“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, a retired US Army lieutenant colonel, is also a candidate for a chair with the Texas GOP.
Luke Twombly, a spokesperson for West’s campaign said his injuries are serious, but West “plans to continue to be a proponent for freedom and the state of Texas, and will resume his regular calendar of activities upon clearance by his medical team.”
“LTC West thanks the public for their well-wishes and outpouring of support, and continued prayers on his behalf are appreciated.”
