.- The U.S. Ambassador to Malta, Douglas Kmiec, was reported to be in good condition after a one-car collision on Wednesday in Malibu, California which killed a religious sister and injured a priest.

The Malibu Times reported on Thursday that Sister Mary Campbell from Our Lady of Malibu Catholic Church was killed at the intersection of Las Virgenes Canyon Road and Mulholland Drive on Aug. 25.

Ninety-five year-old Msgr. John Sheridan from the same parish, as well as Ambassador Kmiec were injured in the crash, but were reported to be in good condition after both underwent surgery.

The U.S. ambassador to Malta, a well-known scholar and popular law commentator, is a former professor of Pepperdine University. Ambassador Kmiec also served as dean and St. Thomas More Professor of Law at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., additionally serving for nearly two decades on the law faculty at the University of Notre Dame.

The ambassador was nominated by President Obama to serve as the Ambassador to Malta on July 2, 2009.
