RACINE (WITI) — FOX6 News has learned Sen. Kathleen Vinehout suffered multiple fractures in her right arm as the result of a Sunday car accident on I-94 in Racine.

A post on Vinehout’s Facebook page on Monday, December 9th reads as follows:

“Sen. Kathleen Vinehout’s husband says she has been released from the hospital following a Sunday car accident that resulted in multiple fractures in her right arm.

Douglas Kane said Monday that Vinehout ‘seems to be doing quite well.’

Vinehout is a Democrat from Alma in western Wisconsin and is considering running for governor next year.

Vinehout was hurt Sunday morning following a crash in snowy weather in the Racine area where she was originally scheduled to hold meet-and-greet events with supporters.

Kane says he doesn’t know details of what happened in the crash but he expects Vinehout to come to Eau Claire on Monday where she will likely have orthopedic surgery on her arm.”

    We never know what tomorrow may bring. Therefore, preventing danger to happen is a clever thing to do. Yet, when we’re in a situation between life and death — we can also think if we could ever escape? However, prevention is still better that cure and as we quote
    “it’s better to be ready that to be sorry.” And for this, I would suggest this safety service that I’m currently using for me and my family. It is a Panic Button installed on a Smartphone’s and it allows us to alert all the member of our family when danger comes. It can also identify the exact location and have the ability to search the address of any
    family that you wanted to locate. You can browse their other features with this link: https://login.safekidzone.com/mobilesafety/?CampaignLandingPage=RelentlessProtectionSafeLink&refcode=relentlessprotection&a_aid=514ae2c64ba1d&a_bid=2b29a9fc

    Accidents can happen any time, no matter how you prepare on things to make you safe everyday. I am so glad I found an application SafeKidZone, it’s a safety management device. You just have to press the Panic Button and your exact GPS coordinates will be sent over to their system and they will know where you are so they can route it over to the nearest 9-1-1 center based on your GPS location.
