Oglala Sioux Tribe President Injured In Car Wreck
RAPID CITY, SD -

The newly elected president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe has been injured in a one-vehicle wreck on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in western South Dakota.

Bryan Brewer's administrative assistant says the cause of the Saturday night wreck is so far unknown.

Angie Sam says Brewer is still "pretty heavily medicated."

Reports say that Brewer suffered cuts to his head and a broken hip, but Sam says it was a clean break and the president is expected to make a fast recovery.

Brewer is being treated at the Rapid City Regional Hospital.

The wreck was near Red Shirt Table.

Sam says the injuries won't sideline Brewer's ability to fulfill his presidential duties for the tribe, though some meetings will need to be rescheduled.
