For almost three decades, Congalton has hosted “Hometown Radio with Dave Congalton” on 920 AM.

Responders transported Congalton to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center where he is being treated for his injuries. Congalton suffered leg and head injuries.

“I was seriously injured when I was hit by a car this morning in San Luis Obispo, walking to the women’s march,” Congalton posted on Facebook. “I’ll be in Sierra Vista Hospital for the next couple days with surgery scheduled for tomorrow. My left leg is all messed up and it’s going to take a couple months of rehab before I can walk again.”

No further information about the accident was immediately available.


Ok…. I think enough time has gone by that we should know who hit him. What about calling the SLO PD for an accident report? The info is oddly conspicuous by its absence.

Dave, I think you should change your talent name to Lucky. If your ribs are ok, I hope you can laugh this one off. Get well soon.


Get well soon, Dave!
