Spinal Tap star Michael Mckean has been hospitalised in New York after he was knocked down by a car. The veteran funnyman broke his leg and suffered facial lacerations in the accident on Tuesday (23May12).
McKean's representative has confirmed the incident to The Wrap.com, noting that the actor was walking along a street on the upper West Side of the city when a car mounted the curb and struck him.
Photographs of the bloodied star, lying on a stretcher and sporting a neck brace have appeared online, but McKean's rep has reassured fans that the 64-year-old actor is "fine" after initial reports suggested he was in critical condition at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital.
His injuries have forced him to pull out of Tuesday night's (22May12) performance of his Broadway play The Best Man.
