Catlin Hogan, who is seeking election in Martensville, just outside of Saskatoon, was sidelined after the accident, which took place Wednesday.

Details about what happened were not immediately available, but the party said in a news release issued Thursday night that Hogan suffered a concussion and injuries to his leg, but was expected to recover.

"I know I speak for the entire NDP family in extending my very best to Catlin for a speedy recovery," NDP leader Dwain Lingenfelter said in the release. "He’s a good man who is enthusiastic about being on the doorsteps in Martensville, meeting with and hearing about the issues raised by those residents. I sincerely hope he’s able to get back to the activities he loves, and soon."
