Jay Leno is on the mend again, this time following a motorcycle accident.
The comedian was already recovering from second-degree burns on his upper body and part of his face after a 1907 White Steam Car he was working on in his Burbank garage caught fire in November.
Now, the 72-year-old tells the Las Vegas Review Journal that he suffered injuries in a motorcycle crash.
Referring to the fire, he said, “That was the first accident. Okay? Okay? I now have a broken collarbone. I’ve got two broken ribs. I’ve got two cracked kneecaps.”
“But I’m okay!” Leno insisted. “I’m okay, I’m working. I’m working this weekend.
Jay Leno recollects the moment his face caught fire in his first TV interview
He claimed that he was trying out a vintage 1940 Indian bike when he noticed leaking gas.
“So I turned down a sidestreet and drove through a lot. Unbeknownst to my surprise, a guy had a wire running across the lot with no flag attached to it. “So, you see, I didn’t see it until it became too late. It just clotheslined my head and, boom!, knocked it off the bike.
Leno decided not to speak up because of the attention he received after the fire.
Leno laughed. “After that, it’s Harrison Ford, crashing into airplanes. You just want your head down. “
Leno spoke to the paper to promote the Encore Theater’s March 31.
