SHARE Cycle accident keeps producer from Philly

Jerry Weintraub is spending the week in the hospital instead of at the Republican National Convention with his wife, Jane, a California delegate.

The movie producer best known for "Diner," "Oh, God!" and "The Karate Kid" broke his shoulder and knee when he was launched over the handlebars of his bicycle.

Weintraub, 62, was riding Sunday near his Kennebunkport, Maine, home when he struck something on the highway and was hurled to the ground, said his Los Angeles publicist, Paul Bloch. "He's in a tremendous amount of pain," Bloch said.
