Romanian PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu left the Elias Hospital in Bucharest on Wednesday morning to attend a government meeting some 14 hours after he was hospitalized following a motorbike accident. Officials did not exclude that he might return to further medical examinations once the session is over.

Tariceanu was considered the author of the traffic accident on Tuesday evening, when he lost control of his Harley Davidson bike and hit a car coming from the opposite direction. He suffered only a leg affection and a few other minor injuries in the crash, while the driver of the car was not hurt.

The prime minister was accompanied to the government meeting by his wife. He was wearing a rather unusual outfit - shorts and a vaporous shirt.
