Former senator and astronaut John Glenn and his wife, Annie, were discharged Sunday from a Columbus, Ohio, hospital where they had been recovering from what he called a "very serious" car accident.
"I do not recommend you go test your air bags the way we did the other night," Glenn said.
Neither Glenn nor his wife was seriously injured, said Dr. Paul Beery. Beery said the former senator suffered a minor fracture in his sternum.
"As far as this being minor, it's not minor to me because it hurts," said the 85-year-old Glenn.
Annie Glenn, 86, is recovering from what her husband called "bumps and bruises."
