Close Call For George W.

Texas Gov. George W. Bush suffered minor bruises to his leg and hip Monday when he dove to avoid a truck while he was jogging. He is "okay" according to his press office.

"Governor Bush was treated at the scene and returned home and is traveling to New Hampshire this afternoon," said Linda Edwards, Bush's press secretary.

"Fortunately, I escaped injury," Bush said on CBS Early Show Tuesday. "I dove to avoid the refuse and am sore but feel great."

A Texas Department of Public Safety agent with Bush, Roscoe Hughey, was hospitalized with injuries, Edwards said.

The accident apparently occurred about 12:30 p.m. CST, Edwards said, although she said details were sketchy.
