“According to law enforcement on the scene, a car cut LTC West off, resulting in two motorcycles colliding, one of which was his. He was transported by helicopter to the hospital, where he is currently in stable condition and undergoing assessment,”
“Family and members of Team West are at the hospital, and we will continue to provide updates,” the post added. “We appreciate the support and kind notes and solicit your continued prayers.”#PrayersForAllen
West, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, moved to Texas after serving one term as the representative for Florida’s 22nd Congressional District from 2011 to 2013. He lost his reelection bid to Democrat Lois Frankel in the 2012 election.
Earlier this year West announced that he was running to be chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.

‘I am Alive By the Grace of God’Allen West
After Mototcycle Accident
Former Lt. Col. Allen West (Ret.) was involved in a motorcycle accident on Saturday in Texas and is now recovering, according to a statement released exclusively to Breitbart News.
West, who won election to Congress in the Tea Party wave a decade ago, represented Florida’s 22nd congressional district for one term, but found re-election difficult after district boundaries were redrawn. He now lives in Texas and is running for state Republican Party chair.
A statement released by his campaign read in full:
- On his drive back from the “Free Texas Rally” in Austin, TX, Lt. Col. Allen West was struck by a fellow motorcyclist. He is recovering now and has his family with him.
- Local law enforcement reported that “an unidentified vehicle changed lanes when unsafe in front of two motorcyclists. The motorcyclist attempted to brake, and the rear motorcyclist crashed into the front motorcyclist. Both motorcyclist were transported to Baylor Scott and White in Waco to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.”
- Allen West is currently dealing with a concussion, several fractured bones, and multiple lacerations. Though these injuries are serious, Lt. Col. West stated, “that I am alive by the grace of God.” He plans to continue to be an proponent for freedom and the state of Texas, but he will be taking the next couple weeks off of advocacy to recover.
- Your continued prayers and grace are appreciated.
God Bless, LtCol West. We here at J3 pray for your continued recovery and those who were injured with you.
