March 2, 2010
DENVER (AP) – Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter has been injured in an accident while riding a bicycle, apparently suffering several broken ribs.
Ritter’s spokesman, Evan Dreyer, says the accident occurred early Tuesday when the governor collided with another cyclist in a group of four. Dreyer says Ritter appears to have multiple rib fractures on his right side.
Dreyer says Ritter is being treated at Denver Health Medical Center and is in good spirits, laughing and joking with hospital staff.
Dreyer says the other cyclist had minor injuries and wasn’t taken to a hospital.
