State Rep. Mike Hill, R-Columbiana, was rushed to the hospital around 4:30 p.m. May 31 after his blood pressure spiked while he was in the House of Representatives in Montgomery.

State Sen. Cam Ward, R-Shelby, said Hill had simply forgotten to take his blood pressure medicine earlier May 31. Ward said Hill was not feeling well and had his blood pressure checked. When it was determined his blood pressure was too high, he was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.

“They took him to the hospital as a precaution, but I think everything’s OK,” Ward said. “He’s doing well.”
