Jay Leno can’t catch a break these days.
The Tonight Show host (and noted car enthusiast) looked to be in need of a tow truck Sunday, when auto problems forced him and a passenger to pull onto the shoulder of the southbound 405 freeway after one of him vintage cars pooped out on him.
The 58-year-old funnyman was able to fix the car himself and signal back into the slow crawl of Los Angeles traffic without any further incident.
Leno is anticipated to return to the Tonight Show Monday after missing the show’s last two tapings when he was kept overnight in a Burbank hospital Thursday after complaining of sickness earlier in the day. After the comedian’s release from the hospital Friday, his rep said the illness wasn’t “symptomatic of anything serious.”
