ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- An associate of Todd Palin says Sarah Palin's husband is expected to recover from a snowmobile accident in Alaska that left him hospitalized.

Scott Davis, Todd Palin's former snowmobile racing partner, said Monday that Palin's father, Jim, told him Todd was injured and in the hospital but would be OK.

Davis raced for years with Palin in Alaska's annual 2,000-mile Iron Dog snowmobile race.

Donald Trump's presidential campaign said earlier Monday that Todd Palin was "in a bad snow machine accident" Sunday night.

The campaign said in a statement that the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential candidate is returning home to be with her husband.

In the 2008 Iron Dog, Todd Palin broke his arm in a high-speed crash, but he and Davis still finished in fourth place.
