Jay Leno Details Injuries He Sustained in Motorcycle Accident Months After Garage Fire
The comedian is now recovering from multiple broken bones after getting knocked off his motorcycle.
Jay Leno seems to be having a string of bad luck as of late.
Just months after the former late-night host was involved in a car fire in his garage that left him severely burned, Leno, 72, has reportedly gotten into yet another serious accident.
According to a new report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the comedian had a motorcycle mishap on Tuesday, Jan. 17 that ended in several broken bones.
"[The fire] was the first accident, OK? Then just last week, I got knocked off my motorcycle," Leno told the publication. "So I've got a broken collarbone. I've got two broken ribs. I've got two cracked kneecaps."
Apparently, the TV personality was testing out a motorcycle from the 1940s when a wire strung across the parking lot unexpectedly pulled him off the bike.
"I didn't see it until it was too late," he explained. "It just clothesline[d] me and boom, knocked me off the bike."
Leno then admitted that he's been keeping the second accident on the down-low since his heavily publicized car fire incident was just months prior.
"You know, after getting burned up, you get that one for free," he said. "After that, you're Harrison Ford, crashing airplanes. You just want to keep your head down."
As Parade previously reported, Leno was working on a car in his Burbank garage back in November 2022 when the vehicle went up in flames, causing second-degree burns all over his face and upper body. He then underwent two skin graft surgeries, and was quickly on the road to recovery.
Luckily, Leno said he's now feeling OK, despite his latest injuries. "I'm OK, I'm working. I'm working this weekend," he told the outlet.
Let's hope he stays out of trouble from now on!
