(CNS) – Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck returned to work Monday after breaking his collarbone in a motocross accident.

Police said the accident occurred last Thursday, but no other details were released.

Beck, 59, is a motocross veteran who specializes in riding vintage motorcycles, and has competed in various categories of motocross and off-road racing since the 1970s.

“Broken collarbones are the occasional price you pay for racing motocross,’’ Beck told the Los Angeles Times.
