SARASOTA, FL (WSFA) - Former Governor Bob Riley is recovering in Florida after being transferred to a Sarasota hospital by air ambulance following his motorcycle accident last week.
The former governor's doctors in Alaska and Alabama thought it would be best to move him to a place where he can be observed for a few days before being released to rest and recuperate with his family. The Riley family owns a condo in Sarasota and was there on vacation when Governor Riley's accident occurred last week.
Governor Riley's doctors gave him clearance for the trip. Riley says he's in better spirits.
