Allen West Recovers, Speaks after Motorcycle Accident in Texas


After being hurt in a motorcycle accident on Saturday, former Congressmen Allen West (R) is resting from his injuries, none of which are life-threatening. Early reports state West was airlifted in stable condition to a local hospital after being cut-off by a vehicle when leaving a rally on his motorcycle.

Just moments ago, we spoke to Allen West from his hospital bed, where he informed us that outside a slew of cuts and scrapes, not to mention sustaining a shoulder injury, he is doing the best he possibly can considering the circumstances.

Col. West is a friend, and we took the opportunity to poke a little fun at our tricycle –riding amigo. True to his form, West quipped back stating, “Oh, you’ve got jokes today.” We suggested to him that 90 –year-olds shouldn’t be out riding around on toys fit for youngsters. We also threatened Allen that we would be visiting him at the hospital (nursing home- ha ha ha) where he is currently residing in Texas.

West is currently running for chairmen of the Texas Republican Party.
