The chairman of the legislature’s Transportation Committee is in serious condition at Rhode Island Hospital after he fell outside his Stonington home early Monday morning at around 2:39 a.m.

Sen. Andrew Maynard, 52, fell from an outside staircase onto a nearby sidewalk at his home,  Stonington Police Capt. Jerry Desmond said. Maynard’s injuries are severe and he was transported by Stonington ambulance to Westerly Hospital. Desmond said the incident appeared accidental but Stonington Police were continuing to investigate it.

Maynard’s Senate colleagues asked the media Monday to respect the family’s privacy.

“Senator Maynard suffered an injury while at home over the weekend,” Sen. President Donald E. Williams, Jr. and Sen. Majority Leader Martin M. Looney said in a statement. “Family members are with him now, at an area hospital, and are caring for him. His family is asking for privacy while he convalesces.”

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman also issued a statement regarding the incident.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Andy and his loved ones,” Malloy and Wyman said in a statement. “Working with him has been an honor and a privilege. He is a powerful voice for his district and for the issues he cares about. We join the rest of our colleagues in wishing him a full and fast recovery.”
