Amador County, CA — Amador County Supervisor Louis Boitano is recovering at home from a car accident last week.
Board Chairman Richard Vinson says the 53 year-old Boitano was returning from a doctor´s appointment Wednesday morning on Jackson Gate Road when he blacked out.
His truck went off the road and hit a fire hydrant.
Vinson says the doctor´s appointment was to follow up on some surgery Boitano had received recently.
Apparently there were no injuries as a result of the accident. But Boitano is going to need more tests and check up work from the surgery.
Boitano was in the hospital for a couple days but is now recovering back at home.
Vinson says Boitano is in good spirits and will return to work within the next couple of weeks.
