Michael McKean was released from St. Luke’s Hospital on Wednesday, a week after he was hit by a car on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
The “This Is Spinal Tap” actor was transferred to Roosevelt Hospital, where he will “undergo extensive rehabilitation,” according to a press statement released by St. Luke’s-Roosevelt.
McKean suffered a broken leg and underwent surgery as a result of the accident. He was forced to drop out of the Broadway production of Gore Vidal’s “The Best Man,” which has been nominated for two Tonys.
“I am heading into week two with renewed admiration for New York City’s Emergency Medical Service staff, the NYPD, the staff of St. Luke’s Hospital (where I was born!) and all those with problems much greater than my own. I am overwhelmed by the good wishes of friends old and new,” McKean said in the statement. “My family has been wonderful. My wife Annette, whom I’ve always suspected of being a saint, has proven to be somewhat more than that.”
