SHARE ‘91 NOBEL WINNER SUFFERS HAND INJURY WHEN CAR IS RAMMED

French scientist Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, the winner of the 1991 Nobel Prize for Physics, suffered a badly injured hand when a woman backed into his car in Paris. De Gennes was sorting papers he had placed on the roof of his car in preparation for a radio interview when the unidentified woman rammed her automobile against the open door of de Gennes' car, shutting it on his right hand. The physicist did the interview but canceled his other appointments and had to have several stitches in the hand.
