Mike Feuer Returns Home from Hospital

The former state assemblyman is released after five days of recovery from a car accident.

Former Assemblyman Mike Feuer, a candidate for Los Angeles city attorney, was released from a hospital Saturday following five days of treatment for serious car injuries, his office announced.

Feuer's office said he will return to the campaign trail on Monday.

Last Monday, Feuer was seriously injured when a large SUV went through a stop light and T-boned his Prius. rescuers used hydraulic jaws to pry the Prius open and pull Feuer out.

He suffered multiple rib fractures with pulmonary contusion and a spleen laceration, and was treated in an intensive care unit at California Hospital Medical Center, near Staples Center.

"I'd like to thank the first responders at the crash scene -- firefighters, paramedics and police officers -- who successfully removed me from my car and brought me safely to the hospital," he said in a statement today.

"I am truly blessed and excited to be going home," he said. "While it will take a little time to get back to 100 percent, I am determined to get back to work."

Feuer, 54,  had served on the L.A. city council from 1995 to 2001 and then ran for assemblyman.

He faces the incumbent Carmen Trutanich, Greg Smith and Noel Weiss in the March election.

I wonder how much it will cost Mike Feuer, personally, for the city personnel and equipment services. Don't they charge the patient something like $14.00 per mile just for the ambulance ride? Even though we all pay taxes to have emergency vehicles, etc. readily available, they charge for actually using the services.

I,m glad he wasn't more seriously injured, what happened to the other driver? Chris, we pay much more than taxes, how about parking fines on streets with dozens of empty spaces & expensive meters, street cleaning fees, in residential tracts where gardeners keep the streets clean, telephone fees, DWP overcharging, so they can send out 6 page invoices in 4 colours.The fact is we are paying only the salaries of a beaurocrasy that gives us little in return, most of whom have more holidays, more sick days & more benefits that most of the private sector. When are we going to do something about it, unless we reduce the costs of this mess, our taxes, fees, and fines will keep increasing until we are BROKE!
