Jay Leno has revealed that he’s suffered severe injuries after a motorcycle accident left him with several broken bones.
Leno is gearing up for his return to Las Vegas to perform at the Encore Theater.
The TV talk show star recently suffered second-degree burns over his upper body and face while working on one of his cars.
He gave an interview with a Vegas media outlet where the first question asked was how is the recovery going.
“It’s so funny you should say that,” Leno said.
“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.
“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.
“So, you know, I didn’t see it until it was too late.
“It just clotheslined me and, boom, knocked me off the bike.
“The bike kept going, and you know how that works out.
“You know, after getting burned up, you get that one for free.
“After that, you’re Harrison Ford, crashing airplanes.
“You just want to keep your head down,” he said.
