MSNBC's O'Donnell injured in automobile accident

Posted

NEW YORK (AP) -- MSNBC says its host Lawrence O’Donnell was injured with his brother Michael in a taxi accident Saturday while vacationing out of the country. The network didn’t specify where the accident occurred.

The two were transported back to the United States -- Lawrence to New York and Michael to Boston. They are both under the care of doctors and are expected to make a full recovery, the network said.

O’Donnell will be off the air for several weeks as he recuperates. MSNBC said Ari Melber is filling in Today and Thursday.

A political analyst, journalist, writer and producer, O’Donnell has hosted "The Last Word" since 2010. It airs 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.
