Michael McKean Hit by a Car on the Upper West Side

Michael McKean, otherwise known as Spinal Tap front man David St. Hubbins (and Laverne & Shirley's Lenny), was struck by a car near his Upper West Side home this afternoon. The actor, who has been performing on Broadway in Gore Vidal's The Best Man, was taken to St. Luke's in critical condition, though his status has since been upgraded to stable. We're comfortable saying a car accident is always better than a bizarre gardening one.
