Jay Leno is no stranger to running into bad luck when it comes to his vehicles. The Emmy-winning late-night host of The Tonight Show is a car enthusiast and has been collecting antique cars and motorcycles for years. Unfortunately, the bad luck streak struck again this week when Jay was involved in a motorcycle accident that left him with broken bones.
The incident happened just outside of Los Angeles, where Jay was riding his vintage motorcycle. The details of the accident are still not clear, but witnesses say that Jay seemed to have taken a bad turn while making a U-turn and crashed into the curb. An ambulance was called, but Jay was determined to drive himself to the doctor and refused help from the paramedics.
Once at the hospital, Jay was found to have a fractured shoulder and several broken bones. Luckily, he was able to walk away from the accident and seems to be in good spirits despite his injuries. His doctors have issued a full recovery plan and expect him to be back on the move and attending appearances as soon as possible.
It’s been a rough few months for the former Tonight Show host. Just two months ago, Jay’s beloved classic car was destroyed in a massive car fire. Jay had just finished refurbishing the car and was planning to enter it into his “Leno Car Collection Competitions,” which he hosts once a year. The fire took place, ironically enough, right in front of the show studios and Jay had to watch as his once beautiful car was virtually obliterated in flames.
While Jay was already dealing with the emotional aftermath of the car fire, the injury from the motorcycle accident has only complicated matters. As of now, Jay is resting and focusing on getting back on his feet. He is confident that he will be able to return to work and be back on the road with his beloved cars and motorcycles soon.
Due to his highly active lifestyle, Jay’s injury has been a shock to many of his fans and viewers. It serves as a reminder that no matter how experienced and prepared you are, accidents can happen. We wish Jay a full and quick recovery from both the accident and the car fire, and hope that the bad luck streak has ended for now.
