DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Former Iowa candidate for governor Fred Hubbell has been injured in a bicycle accident in Arizona.

Family friend David Adelman says Hubbell was struck by a car on Friday at an intersection in Scottsdale, Arizona, where Hubbell has a home.

Adelman says Hubbell, who is 67, has undergone surgeries for a fractured pelvis but the injuries are not life-threatening.

Adelman says he’s spoken with Hubbell’s wife, Charlotte, who reported Hubbell is expected to need physical therapy to fully recover.

Hubbell was the Democratic candidate for governor and was narrowly defeated by Gov. Kim Reynolds in November.
