In a statement, Trump's campaign said: "Todd Palin was in a bad snow machine accident last night and is currently hospitalized. Governor Palin is returning to Alaska to be with her husband and looks forward to being back on the campaign trail soon. Mr. Trump's thoughts and prayers are with the Palin family at this time."
The former Alaska governor will stop by a Trump town hall in Tampa but has canceled her other planned appearances with the GOP frontrunner, whom she endorsed earlier this year. She has been in contact with medical personnel and will be traveling back to Alaska today, the source said.

Palin was scheduled to appear on Trump's behalf at noon ET in The Villages, Florida. Just minutes before its scheduled start time, the Trump campaign advised that the event had been canceled.
"Governor Palin wishes her best to Mr. Trump in the upcoming primaries," that earlier brief statement from the Trump campaign read.
