Senator Johnson was in a low-impact car accident this morning (4-22-13) in Scappoose. Senator Johnson broke her pelvis in the accident, and is currently being treated at a Portland hospital. She is doing as well as can be expected after the accident and is waiting for her doctor to let her know what the next step in her treatment will be.
Update 5-2-2013 Senator Johnson has been discharged from the hospital and is currently recovering at a Portland skilled nursing facility. She does not know exactly when she will be able to return to her duties as your State Senator in Salem, but will do so as soon as doctors give her the OK. You can hear her comments here:
When Senator Johnson returns to Salem, she will be in an electric wheelchair, which will limit her ability to attend events outside Salem in coming weeks. She wants to thank all the doctors and staff at OHSU for taking such good care of her, and she also wants to thank all the people who sent well wishes via phone, e-mail, cards, and social media.
