Secretary of State John Kerry Breaks Leg in Geneva Bicycle Accident

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has broken his leg in bike crash near Geneva and has called off the rest of a four-nation trip.

Kerry now plans to return to the United States on Sunday after X-rays at a Swiss hospital confirmed that he fractured his right femur. He will receive further treatment in Boston.


State Department spokeswoman John Kirby says Kerry will be treated by the same doctor who performed a prior hip surgery. Kirby says Kerry is stable, never lost consciousness and that his injury is not life-threatening.

He says Kerry should make a full recovery and is in good spirits. Ending the trip means Kerry is skipping meetings with Spanish leaders and a conference in Paris on fighting the Islamic State group.
