Leader of the federal Opposition Anthony Albanese has been hospitalised following a car crash in Sydney’s Inner West.
A spokesman for Mr Albanese confirmed to Yahoo News Australia he was involved in a crash on Friday afternoon on Hill Street, Marrickville about 5pm.
“He’s heavily shaken but OK,” the spokesman said.
“He’s been taken to hospital for X-rays.”
Photos on Facebook showed the leader of the Labor Party speaking with NSW ambulance officials after his Toyota Camry was involved in a crash with a black Range Rover.
According to witness reports, a P-plate driver allegedly collided with the vehicle Mr Albanese was in.
I’m very thankful that @AlboMP is ok. Getting T-boned by a P plate Range Rover is always gonna shake a guy up. Damn I love that man. A bit of faith in Albo goes a long way.
