Gubernatorial candidate Rich Stanek discharged from hospital after crash in Buffalo
Republican candidate for governor and former Hennepin County Sheriff Richard Stanek was discharged from North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale on Thursday after being involved in a vehicle crash, according to a statement from his campaign.
The crash occurred Tuesday evening in Buffalo after leaving a campaign event, according to a spokesperson for Stanek’s gubernatorial campaign.
“I want to thank everyone across Minnesota for their warm wishes. I also want to thank the medical professionals at North Memorial Health Hospital, and the first responders at the scene who took great care of me, and everyone involved. Finally, I want to wish the other driver a full recovery,” said Rich Stanek in the statement.
A crash report from the Minnesota State Patrol states that Stanek was leaving the parking lot of Buffalo Covenant Church in a Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck when he crashed into a northbound Chevrolet Malibu near the intersection of Highway 25 and Catlin Street in Buffalo just after 8:30 p.m.
The statement from Stanek’s campaign also said that doctors are not worried about any ongoing medical concerns.
