The mishap occurred Sunday while the "Ferris Bueller" star was horseback riding at his holiday home in Ireland. Broderick was treated at Sligo General Hospital Monday, accompanied by his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker.

Broderick was treated and released. The actor's publicist told TMZ "Matthew is in a little pain but is fine."

The area has been perilous for Broderick. In 1987, the actor suffered facial lacerations and a broken thigh when his rented BMW smashed head-on into another car in Northern Ireland.

Sligo is in the Republic of Ireland. We gained our independence from the UK in 1921.

"knocking over"? He was driving the wrong way down a street at night, and hit head-on an oncoming car, killing the two occupants (a mother and her daughter).
