Warner Flips, then Flops...Breaking Hand

Posted by Bob Brigham

From The Guardian:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Mark R. Warner broke his bill-signing hand Monday in a spill from his bicycle.

Warner, 50, was treated at a hospital after suffering two broken bones in his right hand, said press secretary Kevin Hall. [...]

Warner lost control as he was approaching a railroad track and holding a water bottle in one hand, leaving him unable to apply pressure evenly to brakes for the front and rear wheels, Hall said. Warner apparently squeezed the front brakes too hard, flipping the bike.

I'm trying not to laugh, really, I am.

Hat Tip to David Boyle.
