PLANO, Texas (AP) - The oldest-ever member of the U.S. House has been transferred from a hospital to a rehabilitation center to continue his recovery from injuries suffered in a car wreck.

In a statement Tuesday, a spokeswoman for U.S. Rep. Ralph Hall said the 91-year-old Texas Republican was discharged from Medical Center of Plano over the weekend to an inpatient rehabilitation center.

Aide Natalie Raulston said Hall suffered a broken nose and broken femur Oct. 4 when the vehicle in which he was riding slammed into another that turned in front of his in Trenton, about 60 miles northeast of Dallas. The drivers were not injured.

Hall is to leave office in January after losing a May Republican primary runoff for the 4th Congressional District seat.
