SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — 2018 Iowa Democratic gubernatorial nominee Fred Hubbell underwent a second surgery Monday afternoon after a car hit him in Scottsdale, Arizona, Friday afternoon.
A family friend confirmed to Channel 13 that Hubbell was riding his bicycle alone when a motorist ran a red light and hit him. Hubbell suffered a broken pelvis and is expected to recover a lengthy rehabilitation.
The Hubbells have a home in Scottsdale.
Governor Kim Reynolds, the Republican who defeated Hubbell in 2018, tweeted a message about Hubbell.
Kevin and I offer our sincerest and deepest best wishes to Fred and his family as he recovers from this tragic accident.
