Early this morning, Oklahomans woke up to the news that Abby Broyles – my former KFOR co-worker who is now the Democratic challenger to Jim Inhofe for the US Senate – was involved in a hit and run accident late last night.
Here’s a tweet about it:
Say a prayer for Abby tonight. A couple of hours ago, she was struck in a hit and run accident. She is at home resting but obviously a bit shaken up. Police are searching for the vehicle that struck her. We know she’ll be okay- She’s strong and a fighter. pic.twitter.com/OYJjiuYQud

According to an Ogle Mole, the accident occurred in the Chisholm Creek area near Pawnee Dr. and Memorial. Apparently, the driver ran a red light, struck Ms. Broyles, and then drove away screaming “Global warming is a myth perpetuated by the world’s scientists! Maniacal laugh! Maniacal laugh!”
Okay, I made up that last part.
Naturally, lots of people on social media are speculating if an evil soul like Jim Inhofe was somehow involved in the accident. I don’t think so. Hit and runs with cars are not his style. He’d probably just land an airplane on her vehicle and then fly off into the night.
Anyway, outside of being a little sore, Abby is apparently doing well and ready to get back in the campaign trail. We wish her the best of luck.
