Former State Assemblyman Mike Feuer remains hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries after a truck allegedly ran a red light and hit his Prius.

The accident occurred Monday as Feuer was driving to the swearing-in ceremony at the Galen Center at USC for new Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey.

The Assemblyman suffered multiple rib fractures with pulmonary contusion and a spleen laceration.

Feuer, also a candidate for Los Angeles City Attorney, will reportedly remain in the hospital for a few days and is expected to make a full and speedy recovery.
