ABC’s Abbie Boudreau, who was injured in a serious car accident while on assignment, has now been released from a Virginia hospital after two days of treatment and tests. Boudreau’s producer, Mary Bruce, was also hurt, but released from the hospital the day of the accident.
The exact nature of Boudreau’s injuries has not been released.
In a memo sent this afternoon to ABC News staffers, news chief David Westin says it looks like both will make a “full recovery.”
As we reported, Boudreau and Bruce were in a car outside Richmond, Virginia when their vehicle was rear-ended by a semi, in an accident that ABC insiders described as “scary.”
Here’s Westin’s memo, in full:

I’m pleased to report that Abbie Boudreau was released from the hospital yesterday after going through a full set of tests and that Mary Bruce is now safely back home. Their doctors will continue to monitor them in the coming days, but from what we know now it appears they both will have a full recovery.
