Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin canceled an appearance at a Donald Trump campaign event in Florida Monday. The announcement came just before news broke that Palin's husband, Todd Palin, had reportedly been injured in a snowmobile accident in Alaska.
Sarah Palin had been scheduled to speak at 12 p.m. EDT at a campaign event for the Republican presidential front-runner in The Villages, Florida. Trump is eyeing the Florida Republican primary on Tuesday, which could help him win enough delegates to effectively secure the nomination. Palin has been a vocal supporter of Trump's campaign since endorsing the businessman in January. Trump has previously stated that Palin would "deserve a role" in his potential administration.

Palin canceled the event as news broke that her husband had been injured in a snowmobile accident in Alaska.
"Todd Palin was in a bad snow machine accident last night and is currently hospitalized. Gov. Palin is returning to Alaska to be with her husband and looks forward to being back on the campaign trail soon. Mr. Trump's thoughts and prayers are with the Palin family at this time," said a Trump campaign statement.
