Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC Injured in Car AccidentBy: Kathy Karadza - April 16, 2014
Lawrence O’Donnell is taking several weeks off as host of MSNBC’s The Last Word to recover from injuries he sustained in a taxi accident with his brother while on vacation outside of the U.S., the network said Monday.
O’Donnell and his brother, Michael, were both transported back to the United States for treatment. Lawrence went to New York, and Michael was brought to Boston. The network did not provide details regarding their injuries, but said that both men are expected to make a full recovery.
MSNBC did not specify where the brothers were vacationing when the accident occurred.
“Lawrence will be off from MSNBC for several weeks as he recuperates,” MSNBC said in a statement. “Our thoughts and support are with the O’Donnell family and we look forward to having Lawrence back on the air soon,” the statement said.
