Uruguayan Ex-VP, Presidential Hopeful Has Car Crash on Campaign Trail

MONTEVIDEO – Former Uruguayan vice president and presidential hopeful for the Colorado Party, Luis Hierro Lopez, emerged unhurt from a car crash on the campaign trail on Sunday, authorities said.

The vehicle in which Hierro Lopez was riding while campaigning for the June 28 internal party election went off the road – national highway No. 5 – and flipped over near the city of Durazno, some 200 kilometers (162 miles) north of Montevideo.

Although the ex-VP was not hurt, his driver suffered multiple injuries and was taken to a hospital, Highway Police said.

At the time of the crash, it was raining in the area and the road was slippery.

The election campaign for the internal party elections of all the country’s parties will be held next Sunday and will determine who the various parties’ presidential nominees are for the October elections, but so far on the campaign trail several of the candidates have had various problems.

Another presidential hopeful, former President Luis Alberto Lacalle, who governed from 1990-1995, of the National Party, also known as the White Party, is campaigning with a splint on his right leg after having to be operated upon after an accident in his home.

And a candidate for the governing leftist Broad Front’s presidential nomination, former Economy and Finance Minister Danilo Astori, returned to his home four days ago after spending three weeks in the hospital with a lung infection that forced him to interrupt his campaign.
