PNC sources are reporting that Vice Speaker Tina Rose Muna Barnes, her husband Jake, and daughter Tiffany were involved in a car accident in Arizona.

They were rushed to the hospital and there was some bleeding on the vice speaker’s head but Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero was just informed that the vice speaker is alert and getting checked at the hospital.

The vice speaker’s office on Guam has confirmed that she and her family were involved in a serious car accident.

“She is alert, okay, and will be staying overnight at the hospital. We ask everyone to keep her and her family in their thoughts and prayers,” said Chirag Bhojwani, the vice speaker’s communications director.

The vice speaker traveled to Arizona to accompany an immediate family member who needed to receive medical treatment from a specialist.

PNC, along with the island community, is praying for vice speaker Tina Rose Muna Barnes and her family.

This is a developing story.
