Dave_swimming2 After spending a night at the Boulder Community Hospital, six time Ironman World Champion Dave Scott had surgery today on his shoulder blade at the Steadman Hawkins Clinics in Vail today.

Scott was struck by a car in the Wonderland Hill area of Boulder, Colorado yesterday while biking.

Jimmy Archer, a professional triathlete who happen to arrive at the scene of the accident a few minutes after it occurred said that it looked like a late model BMW SUV was making a u-turn on Linden Ave when the car hit Scott.

"The car had a pretty big dent," Archer said.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera:

" Friends said Scott spent Sunday night at Boulder Community Hospital.

Boulder police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley could not locate an official report of the accident, saying it likely hasn' t been completed yet. She had no information on whether anyone was ticketed."

Unconfirmed reports suggest that Scott also broke his finger and wrist during the accident.
