State Assemblyman Mike Feuer, D-Los Angeles, was hospitalized Monday after the car he was driving was hit by a truck, according to his political consultant.
The assemblyman was driving a Toyota Prius on his way to L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s swearing-in ceremony when another driver ran a red light and crashed into his car.
“Mr. Feuer did not sustain any life-threatening injuries. However, he will stay in the hospital for the new few days,” said consultant John Shallman. “Mr. Feuer is expected to make a full and speedy recovery. The Feuer family thanks the media and public for respecting their privacy.”
No other details on the crash were immediately available.
Feuer is a candidate for Los Angeles city attorney. He will face incumbent City Attorney Carmen Trutanich in the March primary. He previously served on the Los Angeles City Council.
