    Maine Gov. Paul LePage Says He Needs Surgery After Being Hit by Car in November

    Maine Gov. Paul LePage has announced he needs to have surgery after being struck by a car in November.

    The incident happened the day before Thanksgiving.

    Later, a statement from the governor's office said that LePage suffered minor cuts and bruises when the car struck him and knocked him off his bike but that the crash aggravated LePage's shoulder.
