The world was stunned when, months ago, late-night icon and comedian Jay Leno suffered a terrible accident. The man sustained severe burns due to a fuel leak-induced fire at this garage. Thanks to the quick thinking of a friend, he did not suffer a fatal injury.
Leno received well wishes from around the world and made a remarkable recovery. But, it seems like he might have to reconsider his most cherished hobby. Because, too soon after his first accident, word has come out he has sustained another serious injury.
From Fox News:
Months after Jay Leno suffered “serious burns” in a gasoline fire while working on one of his vehicles, the comedian said he broke several bones in a motorcycle accident.
Leno, 72, was “knocked off” a motorcycle Jan. 17 by a wire strung across a parking lot, breaking two ribs, two kneecaps and a collarbone, he told the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Just months after suffering serious burns from a fire in his garage, Jay Leno broke several bones in a motorcycle accident. According to his own account, he was riding his motorcycle when he smelled what might have been a fuel leak.
He turned off the road, down a side street to cut through a parking lot. He perhaps was planning to either quickly go home and check the bike or park on the spot. Unfortunately, someone had strung a wire across the parking lot but failed to identify it with a flag or sign.
Leno hit the wire and was knocked off his bike. He suffered two broken ribs, two broken kneecaps, and a broken collarbone. That is a pretty serious accident. Thankfully, though, none of the injuries were fatal and he received apt medical treatment.
Despite the injuries, the well-known comedian said he was “Ok!” And he even plans to be “working” this weekend. It is unclear if that means work in his garage or appearing at a comedy show.
Jay Leno has been a beloved household fixture in America for decades. Even after leaving late-night television, he’s continued to produce content on classic cars as well as appear at comedy shows doing stand-up.
I’m sure all of America wishes him a speedy recovery. And perhaps, stay off the bike for a little while…
