NJ Lieutenant Gov. breaks wrist and elbow in bicycle accident

New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno broke her wrist and elbow in a bicycle accident Thursday morning in Sea Bright.

Guadagno stopped suddenly to avoid a vehicle and fell from her bike, the governor's office said.

She is being treated at Jersey Shore Medical Center, where she will remain overnight for routine supervision.

Guadagno has been serving as the state's acting governor while Gov. Chris Christie is in Arizona attending events in his role as chair of the Republican Governors Association.

Should she not be able to serve for any reason, State Senate President Steve Sweeney would be Acting Governor.
