PLANO, Texas (AP) — The oldest-ever member of the U.S. House remains hospitalized after being injured in a weekend car accident in North Texas.

A spokeswoman for Medical Center of Plano says Texas Republican Ralph Hall was in fair and stable condition on Sunday. A spokesman for Hall has said the lawmaker is expected to recover.

Hall was airlifted to the hospital on Saturday after suffering a hip injury and minor cuts and bruises when a car turned in front of his vehicle. The drivers were not injured.
