NYT Managing Editor Jill Abramson Hit By Truck

Yesterday’s memo from Times executive editor Bill Keller, via the Observer:

Colleagues,

Jill Abramson was involved in a traffic accident this morning, and is in the emergency ward at Bellevue Hospital. She is conscious (in fact, she managed to be both funny and stoic through her morphine haze, so the essential Jill seems to be intact) but she has a badly broken leg and is being checked for other injuries. Her husband, Henry Griggs, is standing guard. We’ll keep you posted.

Bill

Page Six has more: “She was rushed to Bellevue Hospital after a private sanitation truck ran over her foot in Midtown yesterday morning. She was crossing at the intersection of West 54th Street and Seventh Avenue just as the garbage hauler was making a right turn. Cops tell us no one did anything illegal and the driver won’t be charged.”

FishbowlNY would like to wish Jill a speedy recovery.
