Sen. Dianne Feinstein told the crowd at the summit that the governor told her he was on his way to a Los Angeles hospital.

Schwarzenegger spokesman Matt David says the governor injured the knee recently while exercising and it has been bothering him all week.

The summit is being attended by officials of the California, Nevada and federal governments. Schwarzenegger is expected to return to work Monday.
