Senate Candidate Abby Broyles Struck In Hit-And-Run Accident


Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Abby Broyles was struck in her car during a hit-and-run accident Sunday night in Oklahoma City.

Broyles, who is challenging Sen. Jim Inhofe in November, proceeded to drive through an intersection after the light had turned green and was t-boned by a driver who fled the scene, according to the police report.

Charity Head, deputy communications director for Broyles’ Senate campaign, says Broyles was driving home from a dinner when the accident occurred. According to Head, a doctor has put Broyles under concussion protocols after seeking medical attention Monday morning.

“She’s ready to get back on the campaign trail though we’re holding her back a little bit because we want to make sure that she’s safe,” Head said.

Oklahoma City Police are investigating the accident.
