WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has broken his right collarbone in a bicycle accident near his home in Cambridge, Mass.

Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said the 72-year-old justice took a spill over the weekend.

The mishap was not preventing Breyer from speaking in New York City Tuesday evening. Breyer was not in court Tuesday morning, but Arberg said the absence was unrelated to the accident.

In 1993, Breyer suffered more serious injuries, a punctured lung and broken ribs, when he was hit by a car while riding his bike across Harvard Square.

He interviewed for a Supreme Court vacancy soon after and did not get the job. President Bill Clinton appointed Breyer, in better health at a second interview, to the high court the following year.
