Responders transported Congalton to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center where he is being treated for his injuries. Congalton suffered leg and head injuries.

“I was seriously injured when I was hit by a car this morning in San Luis Obispo, walking to the women’s march,” Congalton posted on Facebook. “I’ll be in Sierra Vista Hospital for the next couple days with surgery scheduled for tomorrow.

      I would really like to know the identity of who the two “down” voters are. I can make an educated guess. Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson.
