Author Stephen Covey injured in bicycle accident
SALT LAKE CITY - April 20, 2012 (WPVI) -- Motivational speaker and author Stephen R. Covey is recovering in a Provo, Utah, hospital after suffering a head injury in a bicycle accident.
Publicist Debra Lund says the 79-year-old Covey is responding to family members Friday a day after falling from his bike.
Lund says Covey was wearing a helmet but still suffered a head injury. He was taken to a hospital, but doctors have not seen any indication of long-term damage.
Lund says the crash was an accident, caused when Covey lost control, and didn't involve any other people.
Covey is the author of "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" as well as three other books that have all sold more than a million copies. He is the co-founder of Utah-based professional services company Franklin-Covey.
