His passion for vintage cars led to the January garage fire and January wreck. In a gas fire, while fixing the fuel line to a vintage vehicle, he sustained burns to his head and face. It was a motorcycle from a past decade.

He told the Review-Journal’s John Katsilometes he was testing a 1940 motorcycle when he noticed the scent of leaking gas.

“So I turned down a side street and cut through a parking lot, and unbeknownst to me, some guy had a wire strung across the parking lot but with no flag hanging from it,” Leno, 72, said. “So, you know, I didn’t see it until it was too late.”

He insisted he was OK and would even be working this weekend, adding that the intense coverage of the November fire made him reluctant to say anything in the days since last week’s accident.

Leno took over NBC’s “Tonight”Longtime host Johnny Carson resigned in 1992. He was succeeded by Conan O’Brien in 2009, but NBC got cold feet when the show’s ratings dropped and brought Leno back as host in 2010. He continued in his job until Jimmy Fallon succeeded him in 2014.
