There’s no shortage of news this Friday afternoon. But amidst the other stories we’re trying to figure out is just what happened to Montana Rep. Denny Rehberg (R). He was in a boat last night with four other people, most but not all of whom have been identified, when there was what is being described as a “serious” accident — a characterization the picture below would seem to validate.
The accident reportedly occurred just before midnight. And the boat appears to have crashed into a shoreside rock outcropping and done so at sufficient velocity to get the boat entirely out of water and then some.
The news is still very sketchy. And all Rehberg’s staff will say is that Rehberg is in a hospital in “stable condition and is doing well.” The other four passengers have been hospitalized as well.
