CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 1 (UPI) -- Justice Stephen Breyer broke his collarbone in a weekend bicycle accident near his home in Cambridge, Mass., the U.S. Supreme Court says.

Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg told The Boston Globe the cycling accident did not keep the 72-year-old jurist from speaking in New York Tuesday night. He was absent from court Tuesday morning, but for other reasons.

In 1993, Breyer sustained a punctured lung and broken ribs when a car hit him as he rode his bike across Harvard Square in Cambridge.
