ABC News correspondent Abbie Boudreau (left) and her producer, Mary Bruce are recovering after being involved in a serious car accident near Richmond, Virginia this morning.

Boudreau and Bruce were on their way to cover a U.S. military-related story when the car they were in was rear-ended by a semi. Boudreau, who joined ABC News from CNN last month, and Washington, DC-based Bruce were rushed to a hospital in Richmond where Boudreau is still being treated at this hour. Bruce was treated and released earlier.

In a note to staff, obtained by TVNewser, ABC News president David Westin writes, “our colleagues from the Washington Bureau are with them to make sure that they have everything that they need.”
