Former Florida Congressman Allen West joined Brian Kilmeade to recount his story of surviving a motorcycle accident on I-35 near Waco, Texas over the weekend.
“Someone cut me off and — and of course I slowed down as they cut me off and then I don’t know if it was another car or the guy that was on his motorcycle behind me, but they clipped my back wheel and I went — went flying,” West said. “Thank God I didn’t get run over by, you know, another car or anything like that. But, pretty scraped up. I’ve got bandages on both arms and lost a lot of skin there. Lost skin on my face. Dislocated my shoulder and maybe have a slight fracture. And I’ve got a couple bad lacerations in my right palm and across my left knee,” he continued.
During the emotional interview, West expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support he received from around the country.
“I’ll tell you, when you’re sitting there in the hospital and it was Sunday and my wife Angela’s there and she tells me that President Trump just tweeted best wishes and you just break out crying. And it’s hard to fight back the tears when you think about all the people that were praying for you. I just want to thank them, thank the staff at Baylor Scott & White down in Waco, Texas because I shouldn’t be alive, Brian. Most people don’t survive an accident like that.”
