John Kerry breaks leg in Geneva bike crash, flying back to US

Secretary of State John Kerry suffered a broken leg in a bike crash outside Geneva Sunday, where he had been holding nuclear talks with Iran's foreign minister.

Kerry called off the rest of his four-nation trip and will fly back to Boston for further treatment.

State Department spokesman John Kirby said Kerry is stable and never lost consciousness.

Kerry should make a full recovery and is in good spirits, he said.

The accident occurred near Scionzier, France, outside the Swiss border. Paramedics and a physician were on the scene with his motorcade at the time.

Kerry was transported to Geneva's main hospital HUG, where he was being evaluated, Kirby said. A paramedic traveling with his motorcade immediately examined Kerry after his bike apparently hit a curb, causing the fall, Kirby said.
