Jay Leno suffered from broken bones from his motorcycle accident

Following a motorbike accident last week that resulted in several fractured bones, Jay Leno is currently healing.

The accident happened on January 17, and the comedian disclosed on Friday that he cracked his ribs and was thrown off his motorcycle. It took place close to Burbank, California.

He revealed in the interview:

“I got a broken collarbone, couple of broken ribs, and two cracked kneecaps. But other than that, I’m okay.”

After the incident, his standup routine was briefly put on hold, and he underwent shoulder surgery.

The former “Tonight Show” host, 72, claimed that while testing out a vintage motorcycle on the road with a sidecar attached, he smelled gas leakage. He reported adjusting the carburetor before returning to the garage.

He said:

“So I turn around, I start to cut through a parking lot. And there was a wire across two poles which was not well marked and, boom, I just got — it clotheslined me, hit me in the neck and threw me off the bike.”

The comedian revealed his crash tale for the first time to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, explaining that he had held off on doing so earlier owing to the extensive media attention focused on his rehabilitation from the burns he incurred in November.

He suffered from serious burns in November

After a vintage car in his collection caught fire in his garage on November 12, Jay Leno sustained severe burns to his hands, chest, and face.

According to duPont Registry, a marketplace and periodical for rare and historic auto enthusiasts, Leno has an estimated 180 cars and 160 motorcycles in his Burbank garage, which is close to the Hollywood Burbank Airport.

Leno revealed to Hoda Kotb in an exclusive interview on NBC’s “TODAY” program that he and a friend were working on their vintage 1907 White Motor Co. steam-powered car when he found that the fuel line was plugged.

The comedian had gone underneath the vehicle to fix it. He recalled:

“And I said, ‘Blow some air through the line. Then suddenly, boom, I got a face full of gas. And then the pilot light jumped, and my face caught on fire.”

He added:

“My friend pulled me out and jumped on top of me and kind of smothered the fire.”

The comedian received hyperbaric treatment at the Grossman Burn Center in Los Angeles after being transported there by ambulance. According to the facility’s website, this oxygen therapy “can accelerate burn wound healing.”

Jay Leno’s Garage is on the verge of being canceled by NBC

The 30-year career of comedian Jay Leno’s TV show on one of NBCUniversal’s TV networks appears to be coming to an end.

The reality program Jay Leno’s Garage, which has been a mainstay of CNBC’s primetime schedule since 2015, has been canceled, a source told The Hollywood Reporter.

The cancellation coincides with a bigger change in the channel’s schedule, which will see original business documentaries and reality reruns of Shark Tank and Undercover Boss air during primetime.

When Jay Leno departed The Tonight Show in 2014, he used Jay Leno’s Garage as a launching pad. On the show, Leno exhibits his massive automobile collection and conducts interviews with famous people like President Biden and Elon Musk.

After Leno’s final Tonight Show segment aired in February 2014, CNBC quickly ordered Jay Leno’s Garage. It started off as an NBC.com web series and was later picked up by CNBC following the success of a special episode in the summer of 2014.

The seventh and last season of the program aired last fall. Fox-produced game show You Bet Your Life, which Leno also hosts, is a nationally syndicated program.

But with the cancellation of Jay Leno’s Garage, the comedian’s four-decade career at NBC appears to be coming to an end.
