As the title indicates, Fmr. Rep Alan Grayson, while driving his mercedes ran a red light and crashed into a Bus, and injured some folks on it.
Thankfully, according to the Orlando Sentinel, the injuries for the two individuals appear to be slight and the folks will recover from them. But Grayson's Mercedes appears to be seriously damaged. Orlando Sentinel
Before I begin, I see nothing in any of the reading as to the status of Grayson himself. I hope he wasn't gravely injured and if he was injured, I hope he has a quick recovery.
That said, this probably will not help his efforts as a candidate as two other things are discussed. First, he was on the way to a fundraiser. Not a good image to have as an individual who ran a red light while on the way to get money for his campaign. Next, Police will cite him as the person responsible for the accident, which is damaging.
If he is okay (and again, I hope that he is) then he may no longer be viable as a candidate in the 9th district. It's not the accident itself. It's the imagery. It's pretty damn powerful to run an ad based on this again and again. Also, I wouldn't put it past the GOP to put it into a character attack.
We may need to start looking for another person to run for this seat.
UPDATE: It appears that Grayson and his passenger are Ok. H/T Kurious
