Representative Suzanne Bonamici and her husband hit by a car in Portland
Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, D-Ore., was briefly hospitalized Friday night after she and her husband were hit by a car in Portland, according to her spokesperson.
Natalie Crofts, director of communications at Bonamici, said in a statement shared with Twitter that the incident happened as the lawmaker and her husband, Michael Simon, were crossing a street after leaving an event.
Bonamici was treated at a hospital for a concussion and head laceration while Simon was treated for minor injuries, Crofts said. She has since been released and is recovering at home.
“The congresswoman is expected to make a full recovery, but will be unable to attend town hall meetings in Clatsop and Tillamook counties today and other public events while she recovers,” Crofts added.
NBC News has reached out to Bonamici’s office for further details and the Portland Police Department for comment.
