HALIFAX - The son of Nova Scotia cabinet minister Ramona Jennex was critically injured in a car accident on the weekend.
Jennex, who is minister of municipal relations and Service Nova Scotia, missed Monday's first meeting of the NDP cabinet to be at the side of her 21-year-old son, Fraser Williams.
A spokesman for Premier Darrell Dexter said Williams was driving the car and was in critical condition in hospital in Saint John, N.B.
A spokesman for the RCMP in Fredericton said the accident happened at 8:45 p.m. Saturday in nearby Minto.
Sgt. Jean Devost said the cause of the accident is still under investigation. Two male passengers were also hospitalized.
Devost said the driver of the car suffered a head trauma, and one passenger fractured his pelvis. A second passenger was treated and released from hospital.
The premier said his thoughts are with Jennex.
"There was a catastrophic car accident that has put the life of her son in grave jeopardy," Dexter said outside the cabinet meeting.
"We are doing everything we can to support her and to make sure that she knows that we're all thinking about her and her family and recognize this is a very, very difficult time for her."
