Former governor Bob Riley to remain in the hospital

 Bob Riley is still recovering after he was seriously hurt in a wreck in Alaska two weeks ago.

Riley's son, Rob says his dad is doing better but will have to remain in the hospital for some time.

"He's doing much better than the doctors had originally expected he's been out of the hospital over the weekend he is going to have some additional tests run. The doctors had told us with broken ribs there's going to be significant pain for eight weeks. And while it's been two weeks since the accident.. he's still in a lot of pain. He's even made the comment how much better he was than a week ago," said Rob Riley.

Riley crashed last month after hitting a slick spot on a road. The former governor was on a cross-country ride from Alabama to Alaska.
