Ulan Bator: The former prime minister of Mongolia, Norov Altankhuyag was seriously wounded in a car crash on Sunday, media reported.
Altankhuyag`s vehicle overturned near his private resort camp in the northeast of Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia, according to a Xinhua report.
The former prime minister was reported to have broken his clavicle, or collarbone and suffered spinal injury. Doctors advised him to seek treatment abroad immediately.
The country`s media speculated that Altankhuyag might go to South Korea for treatment.
The 56 year-old Altankhuyag was removed from prime ministership following a no-confidence vote in the parliament Nov 5, amid concerns about a serious economic downturn in the landlocked country.
Norov was criticised for incompetence, cronyism and corruption by the opposition Mongolian People`s Party and some from within his Mongolian Democratic Party.
