In the United States in persons under the age of 75 years the most frequent fracture is a colles fracture (just above the wrist).
Over the age of 75 the most frequent fracture is a fracture of the hip bone.

In brief: Collarbone

The clavicle (collarbone) is the most commonly broken bone.
Other common fractures involve the wrist, ankle, hip, and vertebrae. Good question.
