Rep. Rene Oliveira involved in car accident
Rep. Rene Oliveira (D-Brownsville) was taken to Brackenridge Hospital following a car accident Thursday morning. An announcement was made on the House floor just after 11:30 a.m.
We are still waiting for details on his condition, but representatives were informed that his car was totaled.
Speaker Joe Straus asked lawmakers to stand, for a moment of silence.
Rep. Oliveria's chief of staff told YNN he didn't have further information on the accident, but the representative was going to the hospital to be "checked out."
