Automotive: Jay Leno breaks bones in motorcycle accident

Jay Leno, just a few months after suffering serious burns from a car fire, the comedian and avid enthusiast is now recovering from several broken bones caused by a motorcycle crash, he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“It’s so funny you should say that,” said Leno in response to the Review-Journal asking about his burns. “That was the first accident. OK? Then just last week, I got knocked off my motorcycle. So I’ve got a broken collarbone. I’ve got two broken ribs. I’ve got two cracked kneecaps.”

“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 Review-Journal. “So, you know, I didn’t see it until it was too late. It just clothes-lined me and, boom, knocked me off the bike.”

Jay Leno’s Garage featured the talk show host and his sizable car collection, and he often interviews guests about their cars.

CNBC confirmed the series’ cancellation but didn’t say if it would apply to the YouTube channel and series that Leno also hosts.
