Roberts fractures wrist in accident

June 23, 2007


— Sen. Pat Roberts fractured his wrist in a car accident on Friday, his office said.

Roberts, R-Kan., was driving his car near his home in Alexandria, Va., when his car hit another vehicle, spokeswoman Sarah Little said.

Roberts, 71, was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where a small cast was placed on his left wrist, Little said. His wife, Franki, met him there and later drove him home.

"He's doing well, and he's at home," Little said.

Police were called to the scene of the accident. Little said neither driver was blamed in the accident report. The other driver did not seek medical treatment.

Roberts planned to attend events this weekend in Washington and would be back at work on Monday, Little said.
