Jay Leno is in a burn center after suffering a serious injury to his face, reports show.
Leno, 72, suffered “serious” burns on the left side of his face after a car caught on fire “without warning” inside a Los Angeles garage on Sunday, November 13, according to TMZ. The burns reportedly didn’t penetrate Jay’s eye or his ear.
He was taken to the burn ward at Grossman Burn Center where he remains. We do not specifically know his condition, but it is serious enough that he’s been admitted to the hospital.
We’re told Jay has canceled all of his engagements for the duration of the week.
Jay had to cancel his appearance at the Financial Brand Forum in Las Vegas which was scheduled for Sunday night because of the “serious medical emergency”, according to an email sent to the conference’s attendees that was obtained by People.
The email read, “His family was not able to provide us very many details, but there was a very serious medical emergency that is preventing Jay from traveling,” the email stated. “All we know is that he is alive, so our prayers go out to him and his family tonight.” Jay canceled the rest of his engagements for the remainder of the week, according to TMZ.
Speedy recovery, Jay.
