Michael McKean, best known for playing Lenny in the '70s hit TV comedy "Laverne and Shirley" and David St. Hubbins in the mockumentary film "This Is Spinal Tap," was hospitalized on Tuesday after being hit by a car in New York.

The actor, 64, suffered a broken leg and facial lacerations after being struck when a car jumped a curb at the intersection of W. 86 St. and Broadway. He is being treated at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital, according to NBC New York.

McKean, who is currently starring in the Broadway production of "The Best Man," is doing "fine," a rep for the actor told TheWrap.com. However, he will be forced to miss Tuesday night's performance because of his injuries.

In addition to "Spinal Tap," McKean also collaborated with co-star Christopher Guest in 2003's "A Mighty Wind." He also was a cast member on "Saturday Night Live" for one season in 1994.
