Jay Leno Facing Harsh Reality After Latest Incident Left Him With Multiple Broken Bones
Former late-night talk show host Jay Leno says he broke multiple bones in a motorcycle accident months after suffering severe burns to his face after another mishap.
In an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, leno revealed that he suffered a broken collarbone, two broken ribs and two cracked kneecaps after being knocked off his bike on January 17.
“But I’m OK!” Leno said. “I’m OK, I’m working. I’m working this weekend.”
The comedian, who has a standup residency in Vegas, explained that he had been testing out a 1940 Indian motorcycle when he noticed the smell of leaking gasoline.
“So I turned down a side street and cut through a parking lot, and unbeknownst to me, some guy had a wire strung across the parking lot but with no flag hanging from it,” Leno said. “So, you know, I didn’t see it until it was too late. It just clothesline me and, boom, knocked me off the bike.”
Leno said he didn’t initially go public about the accident due to all the publicity he had received following the November incident in which his face was burned while he was working underneath an antique 1907 car.
The revelation prompted much-unsolicited advice, including that, at his age, he should consider slowing down at bit.
