New Jersey governor back at work

PRINCETON, N.J., May 7 (UPI) -- New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine returned to work Monday, three and a half weeks after being seriously injured in a car accident.

Corzine said he hoped people learned from his mistake of not wearing a seatbelt in the crash that left his with multiple broken bones and facing months of physical therapy.

"I can promise you. Buckling up is a hell of a lot easier on your body and health than what I'm going through and gone through," said Corzine.

Corzine spoke to reporters at Drumthwacket, the governor's mansion in Princeton, where he said he will work for the next months until riding in a car becomes more comfortable. He said he will focus on policy and make fewer public appearances around the state.

Corzine's state trooper-driven SUV was traveling 91 mph when it hit a pickup truck and smashed into a guard rail on the Garden State Parkway April 12. The governor said he was working as the trooper drove and that they were not running late.
