Poland's PM Szydlo leaves hospital a week after car crash

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland's prime minister has been released from a hospital in Warsaw where she was treated for a week after suffering minor injuries in a car crash.

Prime Minister Beata Szydlo spoke briefly to reporters as she left the military hospital on Friday evening. She said she still needs a few more days of rest but would be able to attend a weekly government meeting next Tuesday.

Szydlo was injured in the Feb. 10 crash in the southern Polish town of Oswiecim, her hometown. The accident occurred when the driver of her government car swerved to avoid another car and hit a tree. Two security guards were also injured.

She was flown that evening to Warsaw to receive treatment in the military hospital.
