STATEMENT ON GOV. RITTER ACCIDENT


 

Shortly after 6 a.m. this morning, Gov. Ritter was involved in a bicycle accident at

23rd Ave.

and

High St.

in Denver. He is being treated at DenverHealthMedicalCenter for several injuries. It appears he has multiple rib fractures on his right side.

 

The Governor rides with a group of friends two to three times a week, and this morning was with a group of four other riders when he and another rider collided. The Governor is in good spirits, laughing and joking with hospital staff and his wife Jeannie.
