Justice Breyer Fractures Shoulder In (Another) Bike Accident
Originally published on Sat April 27, 2013 4:23 pm
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is recovering in a Georgetown hospital Saturday, following surgery for a fractured right shoulder.
The 74-year-old justice fell while riding his bike along Washington's National Mall on Friday afternoon, NPR's Nina Totenberg tells our Newscast unit.
This makes the third time Breyer has sustained a major injury while riding his bicycle. In May 2011, the justice broke his collarbone riding near his home in Cambridge, Mass. In 1993, Boston.com reports, he suffered a punctured lung and broken ribs when a car hit him in Boston's Harvard Square.
Breyer is resting comfortably and is expected to be released from the hospital early next week, according to a press release from the Supreme Court.
