John Kerry injured in bike accident while at nuclear talks, flown to Swiss hospital



Secretary of State John Kerry was helicoptered to a Swiss hospital Sunday after a bike crash outside of Geneva, where he had been holding nuclear talks with Iran’s foreign minister.

Kerry suffered a likely leg injury, but did not lose consciousness, State Department spokesman John Kirby said. The top American diplomat was in stable condition, Kirby said.

Kerry suffered the accident near Scionzier, France, about 40 kilometers southeast of the Swiss border. Paramedics and a physician were on the scene with his motorcade at the time.

Kerry, an avid biker and windsurfer, was biking with his security detail during a brief break in the talks. Other senior U.S. officials, including Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, are in Lausanne for the talks as well. The talks are aimed at shoring up a tentative framework agreement struck in early April.
