Bike crash Bono's two operations

by AP Reporter

A cycling accident in New York left U2 frontman Bono with multiple fractures that needed two operations.

The Irish singer was in a "high-energy bicycle accident" while trying to avoid another cyclist on Sunday, a New York trauma surgeon said.

X-rays and tests at a Manhattan hospital revealed Bono had a fractured eye socket, a shoulder blade broken in three places and a left elbow fracture that went through the skin and left the bone in six pieces.

Bono underwent a five-hour operation that included washing his elbow out, moving a trapped nerve and inserting three plates and 18 screws on Sunday night.

He had more surgery the next day to repair a finger fracture.
