Broderick, Bach Hurt in Riding Accidents

The actor breaks his collarbone, while Ringo Starr's wife is kicked by a horse

Two stars were injured Sunday in two separate horse-riding accidents: Matthew Broderick and former Bond girl Barbara Bach, the wife of Ringo Starr.

Broderick was on vacation in Ireland when he broke his collarbone after falling off a horse Sunday, his publicist, Simon Halls, tells the Associated Press.

The Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and The Producers star, 44, accompanied by wife Sarah Jessica Parker, was treated and released from a hospital the same day, Halls said.

“He’s fine. He’s just been in a little bit of pain,” Halls tells the AP.

Meanwhile, Bach, who turned 59 on Sunday, was hospitalized with a broken leg after being kicked by a horse, said an official with the Royal Surrey Hospital in Guildford, 35 miles southwest of London.

She had surgery to repair her fractured right femur, the AP reports. Bach costarred with Roger Moore in 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me.
