I heard on Fox that this was a hit-and-run driver. I'd hate to be that guy now, hitting the governor!

It says his injuries are not life threatening, but could still be quite serious. I hope he'll be OK.

New Jersey Governor Is Injured in Car Crash

CAMDEN, N.J., April 12 — Gov. Jon S. Corzine suffered a broken leg, several fractured ribs and cuts on his face Thursday night after his state police vehicle swerved to avoid an apparently out-of-control driver on the Garden State Parkway and hit a guard rail, according to state officials.

Mr. Corzine, 60, who was in the front passenger seat, was flown by helicopter to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, where he was undergoing surgery on his left femur at 9:20 p.m. Dr. Steven E. Ross, head of trauma at Cooper, said the governor was in critical but stable condition, with no head injuries. Other officials said Mr. Corzine had remained conscious after the accident, which happened about 6:15 p.m., and complained of chest pains when he reached the hospital.
