All about Jay Leno’s accident
Apparently, Leno is not concerned about what he just lived so that probably means we shouldn’t either. There’s something about humorists that they somehow get to get rid of emotional pain through a laugh. But it seems that Leno counts on very gross skin that protects him from giving a face gas burn importance, at last, that’s what it looks like. Nevertheless, strong experiences can take time to get processed.
Weeks ago, Leno was comfortably working with his friend Dave Killackey on one of his collection cars, specifically a 1907 White Steam Car. Leno says that he was under the car when he noticed the fuel line was a little clogged. As he blew some air through the line he automatically got his face filled with gas, and we think you can perfectly imagine what happened next. According to Leno, these accidents happen every day.
The comedian’s friend says Leno is minimizing the accident, in fact, after being attended to by the paramedics, he went straight home. Although the professional recommendation was to visit the hospital as soon as possible, Leno visited the hospital until the next day. He was eventually treated at the Grossman Burn Center, with skin grafts & treatment.
