Hu suffered only minor injuries and was able to walk into hospital unaided. His wife sustained a head injury and a fractured left arm. As of press time, she was in the intensive care unit at Tainan's Chimei Hospital but her life was not in danger. Last night's accident took place on the north-bound section of the Formosa Freeway when Hu and his wife were heading back to Taichung City from Kaohsiung City after campaigning for the Chinese Nationalist Party's (KMT) Kaohsiung candidate Huang Chun-ying (黃俊英). According to TVBS cable news, the car carrying Hu and his wife rolled over after hitting another vehicle on the freeway. The couple were rushed to the nearby Chimei Hospital in Tainan.
