Actor Michael McKean, who has starred in classic comedies like "This is Spinal Tap" and "Best in Show," suffered a broken leg Tuesday afternoon after a car smashed into him on New York's Upper West Side.

McKean was struck shortly before 3:00pm as he was walking at West 86th Street and Broadway.

McKean, 64, was rushed to St. Luke's Hospital. Besides the broken leg, doctors were checking to see if he suffered any other broken bones, his manager said.

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

The three passengers in the vehicle were also taken to the hospital with minor injuries, FDNY said.

No criminality was immediately suspected in the crash, police said.

McKean is currently starring on Broadway in Gore Vidal's "The Best Man."
