Bush slightly injured while jogging

November 1, 1999
Web posted at: 3:29 p.m. EST (2029 GMT)

AUSTIN, Texas (CNN) -- Texas Gov. George W. Bush suffered minor cuts and bruises Monday after jumping out of the path of a dump truck while jogging, according to campaign officials.

Bush spokesman Brian Jones said the governor, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, was running with his protective detail near the governor's mansion when he heard a dump truck behind him. Bush jumped out of the way of the truck to avoid being hit, but in doing so suffered a bruise to his hip and minor abrasions on one leg, Jones said. First aid was administered on the scene.

A member of Bush's protective detail, riding alongside the governor on a bike, was hit and taken to a local hospital. The dump truck driver was also transported to the hospital.

Jones said Bush left Austin to go on a scheduled trip to New Hampshire, and should arrive there as planned at 6 p.m. Monday.
