Congresswoman from Oregon hit by a car while crossing the street and sufffers concussion.

Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, a Democrat from Oregon, and her husband were hit by a car on Friday night “while they were walking across a street in a crosswalk,” and are now recovering at home.

The accident happened as the congresswoman and her husband were leaving an event in Portland, Oregon, according to Natalie Crofts, the congresswoman’s director of communications, who tweeted the news of the incident on Saturday.

She received treatment for a head laceration and concussion. He received minor injury care. Crofts stated, “The Congresswoman is expected to make a full recovery, but will not be able to attend the town hall meetings in Clatsop and Tillamook Counties today or other public events. She has been discharged from the hospital to recover at home.

After winning a special election to replace Democrat David Wu, who resigned over claims he made sexual advances, Bonamici was first elected to the House in 2012.

President Joe Biden would have won Oregon’s 1st District in 2020 by 39 points; it is a solidly Democratic district in the Portland area that Bonamici represents. By 36 points, she won a sixth full term in November.

She was a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and chaired the subcommittee on civil rights and human services for the Education and Labor Committee during the previous Congress.
