Social Affairs Sec. gets concussion in tandem bike crash
State Secretary Jetta Klijnsma is working from home for the rest of the week after sustaining a concussion and bruised ribs when she crashed on her tandem bicycle on Wednesday, AD reports. Klijnsma often travels on a tandem bike, with a permanent bike driver, through The Hague due to her spastic legs. She was traveling from the Binnenhof to her department when her bike slipped on the road, made slick by rain. All parliamentary debates scheduled with Klijnsma for this week were removed from the agenda, a spokesperson told the newspaper. They will reassess the situation at the end of the week.
