Jay Leno injured again, breaks collarbone, knees and ribs

Leno was previously injured in November when his face and upper body caught fire while repairing another vintage car.

WASHINGTON — Jay Leno, the popular comedian and former “Tonight Show” host, appears to have been injured in another crash months after a garage fire kept him out of the Las Vegas Strip for several hours. month.

Leno told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he crashed into a motorcycle he was repairing on January 17, breaking his collarbone, several ribs and both kneecaps.

“Just last week, I fell off my motorbike,” he told the newspaper. “So I broke my collarbone. I broke two ribs. I broke two kneecaps.”

But he insisted that he was fine after the collision.

“But I’m fine!” Leno said: “I’m fine, I’m working. I’ll be working this weekend.”

Leno says he’s been working on one of his classic vehicles, a 1940s Indian motorcycle, and has tested it. While cycling, he noticed the smell of gasoline leaking from the bike, so he turned onto a side street to check it out.

“So I turned down a side street and crossed a parking lot, and without my knowledge, some people had strung a rope across the parking lot with no flags,” Leno told Review- Journal over the phone. “So you know, I didn’t see it until it was too late. It just makes me a clothesline and, boom, knocks me off my bike.”

The comedian is known for his love of vintage cars and motorcycles, repairing them at home in Los Angeles and driving them around the area. But restoring old cars can be a dangerous hobby.

Leno has been recovering for months after suffering burns from a garage fire last year. In November, as he was repairing the fuel lines in his 1907 white Steam Car, a fire broke out in his garage. He suffered second-degree burns to part of his body and face.

Despite an unlucky streak with injuries, Leno is set to return to the Las Vegas Strip on March 31, when he makes his debut at a new venue: the Encore Theater in Wynn Las Vegas.
