In his first television interview since he was injured last weekend in a serious motorcycle accident in Texas, former Florida congressman Lt. Col. Allen West said he feels “so blessed” to have survived.

“I will tell you that without a doubt, I’m so blessed from the Lord God almighty because not too many people are going to survive a motorcycle accident on an interstate going 75 miles per hour,”  West told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.

Speaking from his home in Texas as he recovers, West, who is now a candidate to lead the Republican Party of Texas, explained exactly what happened on Saturday.

He said he was on his way back from an “Open up Texas” rally in Austin, riding his motorcycle on Interstate 35 when the accident took place.

“There were four of us on motorcycles and I got cut off in the center lane and so I did a controlled slow down and the motorcycle behind me clipped me and my bike went out from under me and skidded,” West said, adding that he “lost a lot of skin.”

ALLEN WEST GIVES FIRST INTERVIEW SINCE SERIOUS MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT: ‘I SHOULDN’T BE ALIVE’

“I never lost consciousness and I just want to thank the first people that were on the scene,” he continued.

West was hospitalized after suffering a concussion and fractured bones and was released on Monday.

Host Brian Kilmeade pointed out that West had served more than 20 years in the military saying, “You’re a tough guy by nature but man, this had to hurt.”

“Yeah, this was very painful,” West said in response.

He added, “This pushed my toughness to the edge, I’m not going to lie.”

West encouraged all motorcyclists to “wear your personal protection equipment.”

He noted that it was 96 degrees on Saturday and he made the decision not to put his jacket and gloves on, but made sure to wear his boots, jeans and helmet.

On Thursday, West also thanked all those who showed him love and support after the accident saying “it’s just incredible.”

On Sunday President Trump tweeted, “Allen, get well soon!”

West said the president’s tweet “brought tears to my eyes.”

“And to come out of the hospital on Monday, Memorial Day, and to have all of those people there, just clapping and cheering, it’s just incredible,” he continued.

  1. I didn’t watch the video (migraine sez no moving screen bits), but it says in the print right under his picture:

    “Kilmeade pointed out that West had served more than 20 years in the military saying, “You’re a tough guy by nature but man, this had to hurt.”
    “Yeah, this was very painful,” West said in response.
    He added, “This pushed my toughness to the edge, I’m not going to lie.”

    But it’s true they totally avoided (well, in print, but I’ll take y’all’s word on the vid) the issue of whether he got any actual pain meds, if they were even offered at all, only advil & tylenol.

    This guy really got tears in his eyes after seeing a message from the Tweeter in Chief? Oy.

  2. I’m sure he didn’t want to disclose such personal information to the press

  3. I watched same interview. Of course he didnt mention pain. Im sure he was given “pain medication” soon as the EMT rolled up. He was a LT COL. He isnt going to admit to pain after having his body dragged down an asphalt roadway, He’s “army tuff” after all.. I like Mr. Allen I have watched him doing interviews a lot. I have a lot of respect for him,but to think he didnt have pain medication, is like thinking there is no Santa Claus 🙂

    • OF COURSE THE MORON DID…WHY COVER UP THE FACT THAT YOU ARE HUMAN BEINGS AND HUMANS (EVERY ONE OF US) WILL AND FEELS PAIN…OHHHH YEAH SURE..HE HAD ” THE LARGE LOSS OF SKIN ” SCRUBBED CLEAN FOR ROAD DEBRIS WITH TYLENOL BHAHAAAA…OH WAIT…I GUESS SUPERMAN DOES EXIST….GET REAL…NOT DISCLOSE THE FACT HE HAD PAIN MEDS..HE DESCRIBED THE ACCIDENT IN DETAIL SO WHAT IS THE REASON FOR NOT DISCLOSING THE FACTS OF THE REST OF HIS ACCIDENT…THINGS THAT MAKE A PERSON GO…HMMM
