Envoy in Car Crash




MOSCOW -- Croatia's ambassador was recovering in a Moscow hospital Tuesday after he was in a car accident with one of Russia's top television news announcers, Itar-Tass reported.


Ambassador Hidaet Riscevic was hospitalized with "light injuries" after a car crash Sunday. Also hurt in the incident was NTV network anchor Alexander Gerasimov, who was hospitalized with a concussion and a broken foot.


The Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper said the ambassador was more seriously injured than had been reported, suffering two broken ankles and a broken arm.
