Feuer feeling better, says campaign didn't hold back crash news

Thumbnail image for mike-feuer-mug-close.jpgI chatted briefly Wednesday with hospitalized city attorney candidate Mike Feuer. He said he's up and around, isn't in too much pain, and even got to drink some apple juice. Feuer said he expects to get out of the hospital in a few more days and resume campaigning within the limitation of some broken ribs. He was injured on Monday when his Toyota Prius was struck by a red-light runner as Feuer drove to the USC Galen Center for the swearing-in of new District Attorney Jackie Lacey.

Feuer's campaign gave details the following day, saying that the former city councilman and state assembly member had to be extricated from his car by LAFD rescuers using the jaws of life. He was hospitalized in intensive care with "multiple rib fractures with pulmonary contusion and a spleen laceration." The campaign's initial report on Monday night lacked details, but Feuer said Monday that was due to the breaking nature of the news. His team released what they knew, he said.
