For more than 20 years, Jay Leno entertained America as the host of the legendary talk show The Tonight Show. In 2014, he finally handed over the reins to Jimmy Fallon. But this should not be a final farewell to show business. The 72-year-old is still on stage with his own shows, but was scheduled to appear at a financial conference in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

But the meeting was canceled at short notice – and caused major concern for the TV star. Because the reason was a “very serious medical emergency,” the organizer said in an email, citing “TMZ” among others. A few hours later, it was clear: Jay Leno had been involved in an accident and had to be hospitalized.

One of the vehicles of the passionate car collector caught fire and, among other things, burned his face, the portal reported. The 72-year-old man was then transferred to a special clinic, where he is still being treated. His condition was uncertain at first.

Jay Leno spoke out for himself on Monday. He suffered severe burns, but is in a stable condition, the former host of the “Tonight Show” confirmed to the American industry portal “Variety”. “I’m good. It will only take me a week or two to get back on my feet,” he said in a statement.

After the end of the talk show, Jay Leno devoted himself fully to his great hobby: cars and motorcycles. He collected dozens of prints over the decades. Since 2015, his column “Jay Leno’s Garage” for “Popular Mechanics” magazine has even become a television show. In it, the presenter travels across the USA in the footsteps of legendary vehicles.
