Comedian Jay Leno was injured in a motorcycle accident only a couple months after being injured in a garage fire in his home in Los Angeles, California. 

"That was the first accident. OK? Then just last week, I got knocked off my motorcycle," Leno told the Los Vegas Review Journal on Thursday.

The motorcycle accident reportedly happened Jan. 17 when he was drove into a wire strung across a parking lot. 

"I didn’t see it until it was too late. It just clothesline me and, boom, knocked me off the bike,” he also said.

The 72-year-old comedian said he broke his collarbone and two ribs and "cracked" his kneecaps.

As a result of the house fire, Leno said that he suffered severe burns on his upper body and face.

Despite the injuries, Leno still plans to return to the Las Vegas strip in March, the Hill reports
