Jay Leno is recovering after he broke several bones in a motorcycle accident last week.
The comedian and talk show host told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he had broken his collarbone, two ribs, and both kneecaps during a motorcycle accident on January 17.
“But I’m OK!” Leno told the outlet. “I’m OK; I’m working. I’m working this weekend.”
Leno said he noticed the leaking gas smell while working on his vintage motorcycle.
“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 told the outlet. “So, you know, I didn’t see it until it was too late. It just clothesline, me and, boom knocked me off the bike.”
He said, “The bike kept going, and you know how that works out.”
Just two months ago, Leno was hospitalized for second and third-degree burns following a garage car fire.
