Here’s what we know so far. Prayers up for the whole Palin family!

Via Fox News.

Todd Palin, the husband of Sarah Palin, has been hospitalized after a serious snow machine accident Sunday night, as the former Alaska governor cancelled a planned campaign appearance on behalf of Donald Trump to return to Alaska.

The Trump campaign confirmed Monday afternoon that Todd Palin was in a “bad snow machine accident” and currently is hospitalized.

“Governor Palin is returning to Alaska to be with her husband and looks forward to being back on the campaign trail soon. Mr. Trump’s thoughts and prayers are with the Palin family at this time,” the campaign said.

The statement came shortly after the campaign abruptly announced that the Sarah Palin appearance originally scheduled for noon at The Villages in Florida had been cancelled.

UPDATE: Dad: Sarah Palin’s husband broke ribs in crash

Todd Palin’s father says his son, who’s married to Sarah Palin, suffered eight fractured ribs and other injuries in a snowmobile accident in Alaska.

Jim Palin tells The Associated Press in a phone interview that his son also had injuries to his collarbone and lungs, but he doesn’t know the extent of those injuries. He says Todd Palin is scheduled for surgery Monday at a hospital near the Palins’ hometown of Wasilla.

He says he expects his son to recover fully. The father called the crash Sunday night “one of those freak accidents” and says it happened around Petersville, about 70 miles north of Wasilla.

Jim Palin, who splits his time between California and Alaska, says he plans to return to Alaska at the end of the month unless his son wants him there earlier.

He called his son “tough.”
