Gibbs names Cam Wheeler as sub for week after son hurt in car accident

Rep. Marcus Gibbs, R-Grace, isn't at the state Capitol today, because his son and business partner Josh, 37, was seriously injured in a car accident on Saturday and is now in intensive care in a Salt Lake hospital. Gibbs has appointed former state Rep. Cameron Wheeler, R-Ririe, to sub for him for the week. "It's one of those things that in two minutes, your life changes," Gibbs said. "And I've got different issues to worry about. But the reason I've got Cameron up there is I'm still worried about the folks in District 31." Gibbs said of his son, who suffered a head injury, "This morning we're guardedly optimistic. Things are looking better this morning."
