Biden Motorcade Accident Injures Two Olympians

Sunday, 14 Feb 2010 09:08 PM


The White House says that former Olympians Peggy Fleming and Vonetta Flowers were injured and briefly hospitalized after a minor traffic accident while riding in U.S. Vice President Joe Biden's motorcade at the Vancouver Games.

Biden spokesman Jay Carney says in a statement that the motorcade was carrying members of the U.S. delegation to an event on Sunday when the accident occurred. Fleming and Flowers had minor injures and were taken to a hospital, where they were treated and released.

Biden was not involved in the accident.

Fleming won the gold medal in figure skating at the 1968 Olympics, while Flowers won gold in the bobsled with partner Jill Bakken at the Salt Lake City Games.
