Louisiana Attorney General James "Buddy" Caldwell has been taken to a hospital following a single-car crash in Madison Parish that his office described as minor.
Caldwell's office said the attorney general was conscious and appeared to be in "fine condition," but doctors at Madison Parish Hospital were performing tests on him as a precaution.
An office spokesman said Caldwell was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash, which occurred around 7 a.m. on Wednesday.
His office said Caldwell was expected to be released from the hospital later Wednesday but didn't immediately release any other details about the incident.
