Hatzolah First On Scene As Actor Michael McKean struck by car in Manhattan

Spinal Tap star Michael McKean has broken his leg after being hit by a car in New York City.

The 64-year-old, who is currently performing on Broadway, was hurt while walking around Manhattan's Upper West Side.

He was seen lying on a spinal board stretcher with his face bloodied while paramedics treated him.

The car which struck him - as well as seeming to knock over a trash can and a mail box on the sidewalk - had a giant hole in its smashed windshield.

The star, who is celebrated as the fictional lead singer David St Hubbins in the spoof heavy metal band movie This Is Spinal Tap, is now recovering in hospital.

His wife, actress Annette O’Toole, was today flying from their home in Los Angeles to be by her husband’s side

Harriet Sternberg, his spokeswoman, said: 'He has sustained multiple injures and we are trying to find out the extent of other injuries. Hopefully, he’ll be fine.'

His condition was today listed as stable.

He was taken by ambulance to St Luke's hospital after being hit at about 3pm yesterday at the intersection of West 86th Street and Broadway.

The three passengers in the vehicle were also taken there after suffering minor injuries.
