(NBC News) Sarah Palin cancelled a campaign stop for Donald Trump in Florida Monday after her husband Todd was injured in a snow machine crash.

A source told NBC News that Todd Palin was in "a very serious" crash Sunday night and is currently hospitalized in intensive care.

The former Alaska governor will stop by a Trump town hall in Tampa but has cancelled 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 cancelled.

"The event scheduled for Governor Sarah Palin to take place today in The Villages, Florida at 12:00 PM, has been cancelled," the brief statement from the Trump campaign read. "Governor Palin wishes her best to Mr. Trump in the upcoming primaries."
