Former federal minister and PPP leader Syed Faisal Saleh Hayat suffered injuries when his vehicle collided with a truck on the Faisalabad-Gojra Motorway late Wednesday, hospital sources said.
Hayat was on his way to Jhang when his Landcruiser collided with a trailer near the Aminpur Bangla area.
Both Hayat and his driver were admitted to the Allied Hospital in Faisalabad for treatment.
Hayat sustained injuries on his head and a broken arm, but doctors ruled his condition out of danger. His driver is said to be in a critical condition after suffering serious injuries.
Hayat joined the Pakistan Peoples Party earlier this year, more than 14 years after being elected on the PPP ticket in 2002. He had later set up his own faction named PPP-Patriots and finally joined the PML-Q.
The former MNA remained a key member of the federal cabinet under prime minister Shaukat Aziz.
