Prince Recuperating from Head Injury

By Reuven M. Lerner

Christopher H. Prince '92, who was hit by an MBTA bus earlier this month, was released from the hospital on Thursday and is recuperating at his home in Nashua, N.H.

Prince was thrown eight feet when the bus hit his bicycle from behind, and was in the surgical intensive care unit of Beth Israel Hospital for several days following the Feb. 5 accident. A member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, where Prince is the president, said the fall chipped one of the vertebrae just underneath Prince's skull. Prince was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Speaking from his home, Prince said that his own memory of the accident is "pretty fuzzy," and that his head and memory had been hurt.

Prince said he will report back to the surgeon at the hospital soon, but that he is taking medicine in the meantime. "I've been pretty much staying on the couch and resting," he said. He hopes to return to MIT soon, but is not sure just when that will happen, he added.
