Released From Hospital After Being Listed In "Fair"
Astronaut John Glenn, and his wife Annie, were injured in a Friday
car accident. Glenn and his wife were traveling in Ohio when the
accident occurred as Glenn was reportedly trying to turn left onto
an Interstate 270 ramp when the collision occurred.
The other car was driven by Amy Myers of suburban New
Albany, late Friday night.
Glenn, 85, and Annie, 86, were last reported in fair condition
Saturday afternoon at Grant Medical Center before their expected
discharge Sunday, according to nursing supervisor Louis Tejada.
Both police and hospital sources have said little about the
Glenn's injuries or the particulars of the accident, though police
did cite glenn for 'failure to yield.'
Glenn is, of course, noted for his historic 1962 orbital flight,
the first by any American astronaut and went on to serve in the
Senate from 1974 to 1998, whereupon he returned to space that year
at the tender age of 77.
ANN wishes the Glenns a speedy recovery...
