Members of the Illinois House of Representatives paused Tuesday to wish one of their own a speedy recovery from a serious auto accident. State Representative Tom Bennett, a Republican from Gibson City, is continuing to recover from a serious crash late last week. (Bennett is shown in the above photo which was taken earlier.)
House Republican Leader Jim Durkin updated other lawmakers on Bennett’s condition Tuesday….
Bennett suffered 10 broken ribs, 6 with multiple breaks, as he was returning to his home in Gibson City from his district office in Pontiac. The crash occurred at about 9:00 p.m. Thursday. Bennett remained hospitalized in Bloomington on Tuesday.
