Collarbone pain while doing dips

I was doing dips last week and noticed that my collarbone area was hurting a little while doing the dips. I finished my workout and the next day the area was a bit sore. It's not really bad pain at all, but I'm wondering what could cause this. I thought it could just be because I'm pretty heavy (200 lbs) and maybe that my body wasn't used to sustaining such stress. However, I had been doing deeps in the weeks prior to the pain.

Also, I have a friend that is much lighter and notices the same pain the collarbone area.

Could it be from using too wide or too narrow of a grip? These are just standard dips on bars, not ring dips or anything.
