According to his staff, Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) was involved in an accident on his property on Wednesday and suffered “many injuries.” In a statement on social media, the Congressman’s office asked for prayers for him and his family. No other information was given, and a request for comment made Wednesday night did not immediately receive a response from the congressman’s spokesperson.
Steube is the representative for Florida’s 17th District, which encompasses the cities of Sarasota and Venice and is located in the state’s southwest. Rep. Vern Buchanan, a fellow Florida Republican and accident victim, tweeted, “Horrible to learn about @RepGregSteube’s accident earlier today.”

Steube, a former state lawmaker and veteran of the Army, won his first House election in 2019. As an outspoken opponent of President Biden, he has supported an inquiry into the American departure from Afghanistan, co-sponsored legislation to reinstate service personnel who were discharged for refusing a coronavirus vaccination, and opposed abortion “at any degree of development.”
Horrible to hear about @RepGregSteube’s accident earlier today.
Sandy and I are keeping him and his family in our thoughts and prayers and wishing him a very speedy recovery.
