SC congressional candidate injured in deadly crash

Police in South Carolina say Republican congressional candidate Katie Arrington and a friend were stuck by a vehicle giong the wrong way while driving through Charleston County Friday night.

The other driver was killed.

Arrington and her friend, who was driving, were seriously injured.

On Twitter, Arrington's campaign said she suffered a broken back, several broken ribs, and leg injuries, and that surgeons also had to remove parts of her small intestine and colon.

It said she'll likely undergo more surgery Saturday.

The accident comes less than two weeks after Arrington upset incumbent Congressman Mark Sanford in the Republican primary, a defeat that President Donald Trump took credit for.

On Twitter, Sanford said, "Our thoughts and prayers this morning go to Katie Arrington, her family, and those involved in last night's automobile accident." Arrington's Democratic challenger, Joe Cunningham tweeted, that he and his wife are also praying for Arrington, adding that he is suspending all campaign activities until further notice.

On twitter, Arrington's campaign asked for prayers for her, her friend, and the family of the other driver.

It also promises that Arrington will be back at work soon.
