The oldest-ever serving member of the House of Representatives is in the hospital following a car accident. Rep. Ralph Hall of Texas, 91, is being treated in Plano, WFAA reports. He was reportedly riding in a vehicle when another hit it; afterward, he was airlifted to the hospital, and KXII reports he is in serious condition. No one else was injured in the accident, KXII notes. After losing a primary, Hall is due to leave Congress next year, WFAA reports. He was elected in 1980. (Read more Ralph Hall stories.)
