Former U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi has been injured in a bicycle wreck, according to his son Brad.
Brad Enzi, in his Twitter feed, said his father was life-flighted to a hospital for treatment after the Friday accident.
“One of the best basketball fans in the country needs giant prayers tonight after a bike wreck and life flight (Friday) night,” the Twitter message said. “Also happens to be my GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) Dad. Any and all prayers and thoughts accepted no denomination or creed preferred. Just lift him up!”
No other details on the accident or Enzi’s condition were immediately available.
Enzi, 77, served four terms in the U.S. Senate representing Wyoming, winning his first election in 1996 and serving through 2020. Former U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis was elected as his successor after he announced his retirement from Congress.
Before being elected to the U.S. Senate, he served in the Wyoming House of Representatives from 1987 to 1991. He also served as the mayor of Gillette from 1974 until 1982.
