Sen. Rubio's daughter in stable condition following automobile crash

The 12-year-old daughter of Sen. Marco Rubio was hospitalized Saturday after being injured in a traffic accident in Miami, according to a statement released by the senator's office.

"Senator Rubio's daughter was involved in a motor vehicle accident earlier today in Miami. She was airlifted to Miami Children's hospital. She is in stable condition. Senator Rubio was notified of the accident after coming off stage while campaigning with Governor Romney in Kissimmee, Florida. He is en route to Miami," said the statement.

Romney's motocade proceeded down I-4 toward Tampa until near Seffner, where it stopped so Rubio could leave. He was seen getting into a Florida state trooper's car.

Rubio was scheduled to campaign with Romney in Land O'Lakes Saturday night.

Details of the accident involving Amanda Rubio are not known at this time.

Rubio and his wife, Jeanette, have four children.
