Spinal Tap - Michael Mckean Checks Into Physical Rehabilitation Centre

Spinal Tap star Michael Mckean has been relocated to a rehabilitation centre following his car accident in New York last week (begs21May12).
The veteran funnyman was forced to pull out of his Tony-nominated Broadway show Gore Vidal's The Best Man on 22 May (12) after a car reportedly mounted a curb and struck him, leaving the actor with a broken leg and other minor injuries.
MCKean, who was taken to St. Luke's Hospital for treatment, was said to have taken his first step last week (23May12) and on Wednesday (31May12) he was moved to a rehabilitation wing at nearby Roosevelt Hospital, where he'll undergo extensive therapy.
A statement from the 64-year-old actor, released to Tmz.com, reads, "I am heading into week two with renewed admiration for New York City's Emergency Medical Service staff, the Nypd (New York Police Department), the staff of St. Luke's Hospital... and all those with problems much greater than my own."
