MADRID (AP) — One of Spain's senior clergymen has been injured in a car crash in the eastern city of Valencia a day before he was due to celebrate Mass in Rome with Pope Francis, according to a church statement.

Cardinal Antonio Canizares of Valencia was treated in the city's General Hospital early Saturday after receiving cuts to his face and injuring an arm when the car he was being driven in was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle, the statement said.

The crash happened when a car driven by a woman "jumped a red stop light," also injuring the cardinal's chauffeur.

Canizares had been due to concelebrate with the Pope a canonization Mass in the Vatican on Sunday for the parents of France's St. Therese of Lisieux.
