Lawrence O’Donnell will be off the air for several weeks after being involved in a car accident over the weekend while vacationing.
Here’s MSNBC’s statement:
“Lawrence O’Donnell and his brother Michael were injured in a taxi accident on Saturday while vacationing out of the country. They were transported back to the US – Lawrence to NYC and Michael to Boston. They are both under the care of doctors and expected to make a full recovery. Lawrence will be off from MSNBC for several weeks as he recuperates. Our thoughts and support are with the O’Donnell family and we look forward to having Lawrence back on the air soon.”
No word yet on the extent of the O’Donnell brothers’ injuries, but MSNBC tells us both are in good spirits.
Alex Wagner will fill in on “The Last Word” tonight and tomorrow night, with Ari Melber filling in on Wednesday and Thursday.
