Earlier last month, a lead singer for the legendary pop band U2 was involved in a serious accident while riding his bicycle in Central Park in New York City. According to one report by Rolling Stone Magazine, the singer had to undergo a five-hour surgery, requiring 18 screws to be put into his shoulder and hand. He also fractured his orbital socket and his left arm.
Evidently, the singer was riding his bike in Central Park when he attempted to avoid another cyclist. In doing so, he lost control of his bike and ended up crashing. He was immediately taken to the hospital, where doctors addressed his broken arm. Several days later, he underwent a surgery to repair a broken pinky finger.
The doctor describes the accident as a “high energy cycling accident” that was caused by Bono’s attempt to avoid another oncoming cyclist. He said that while the accident was extreme, and the singer’s condition was serious, he expects Bono to make an eventual full recovery. It is expected that Bono will require several months of rehab and recuperation time. It is unclear if his injuries will interfere with any of his tour dates.
