Glen Ridge resident and AP radio correspondent Warren Levinson, who was supposed to be on the podium at Madison Square Garden tonight covering W.’s acceptance speech, is instead at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Greenwich Village recovering from a bicycle accident. Levinson, who returned from covering the Olympics on Sunday, took a spill on his bike in front of the AP’s New York headquarters this afternoon. He suffered a concussion, received three stiches and is being observed overnight, but is expected to recover fully.
Levinson plans to watch the big speech from his hospital bed. It will be the first presidential convention he’s seen on TV, rather than in person, in 20 years.
A St. Vincent’s ER nurse said he was the fourth reporter they’d treated in the past two days.
