Jay Leno claims that he was in a motorbike accident that left him with several broken bones a few months after another accident left him with terrible burns on his face.
The former presenter of a late-night talk show revealed his accident in an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. He stated that he was pushed off his bike on January 17 and sustained multiple injuries as a result, including a broken collarbone, two broken ribs, and two split kneecaps.
“But I’m OK!” Leno stated. “I’m OK, I’m working. I’m working this weekend.” The comedian, who has a standup residency in Vegas, relates that he was evaluating a 1940 Indian motorbike when he became aware of the odor of leaking gasoline. He had been riding the motorcycle for about an hour.
Leno explained his actions by saying, “So I turned down a side street and cut across a parking lot, and unbeknownst to me, some man had a wire strung over the parking lot but there was no flag hanging from it.” “You know, I didn’t realize it until it was too late, which is kind of embarrassing. It just hit me in the side and bang, I went flying off the bike.
Leno stated that he didn’t initially go public about the accident due to all of the press he had received following the November event in which his face was scorched while he was working underneath a vintage 1907 car. The incident occurred in November.

Because the fuel line was clogged, I had to get under the vehicle. “It sounded blocked, and I said, ‘Blow some air through the line,’ and so he did,” the enthusiastic vehicle collector recounted during an appearance on “Today” in December. “And all of a sudden, bam, I was hit in the face with gas. And then the pilot light suddenly leaped, and the flames spread over my face.
After being treated at the Grossman Burn Center in Los Angeles and being released from the hospital after the accident that caused his injuries, Jay Leno posed for a picture with some of the staff members there.
CNN has gotten in touch with Leno’s representatives to request additional comment on the motorbike accident he was involved in.
