Hell on Wheels

Headline: Schwarzenegger Receives Stitches After LA Traffic Accident.

Ahnold was apparently riding his Harley near his home in LA when a vehicle backed out of a driveway in front of him. According to his spokesperson, Margita Thompson, "the governor was unable to avoid the vehicle in his path and collided with it at a low speed." The governator was said to have received 15 stitches in his lip.

Details are a bit sketchy, but St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica did release the following photo of Arnold before he was patched up by the doctors:

Schwarzenegger's son, who was along for the thrill-ride in the motorcycle's sidecar (originally designed to carry Danny Devito), was uninjured. The governor is expected to resume his duties tomorrow and the accident should not affect his busy schedule of exploding the California budget or denying stays of execution.

Upon reflection, we should all be thankful Schwarzenegger wasn't driving his Humvee or the headline would have been much different: Terminator Kills Dozens in Slow-Speed Crash. It would be the first Californians killed by Arnold in, oh, about a month.
