Zell Miller taken to hospital
Report: Former Georgia senator has flu-like symptoms


(CNN) -- Former Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia was taken to a hospital late Thursday, a nurse at the facility outside Atlanta said.

Miller, 73, arrived via ambulance at Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville about 8:45 p.m., nurse Dan Hurst told CNN in a phone interview. He said he could not give details about what caused the hospitalization.

Hurst said the former senator and state governor could talk and respond.

The Associated Press reported that Miller was suffering from flu-like symptoms.

Miller was the keynote speaker at an event for the Gainesville Care Center, a pregnancy resource center. Witnesses said Miller felt faint, and medical services were summoned.

Fire and emergency service officials refused to comment.
