The U.S. Supreme Court Justice nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, Monday broke her ankle accidentally on her way to Washington for her confirmation hearings at the Senate.

White House spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement that Sotomayor tripped and sustained "a small fracture" to her right ankle at New York's LaGuardia Airport earlier Monday.

However, she has been treated and released, and will keep the full schedule of meetings on the Capitol Hill for her confirmation, Burton said.

The 54-year-old female judge was scheduled to meet with six more senators, including Max Baucus, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Charles Grassley, the top Republican member on the Senate Finance Committee.

If confirmed at the Senate, she would become the first Hispanic Justice of the Supreme Court.
