(CBS News) Actor Michael McKean is recovering in a New York City hospital after being struck by a car on Tuesday afternoon.

The 64-year-old, who starred in the film "This is Spinal Tap" and on TV's "Laverne & Shirley," was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Manhattan, where a spokesman says he is currently in stable condition.

A McKean rep, Harriet Sternberg, told the Associated Press the actor suffered a broken leg.

Emergency officials said McKean was struck at West 86th Street and Broadway, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, just before 3 p.m. on Tuesday. According to  the New York Daily News, Sternberg said McKean's wife, actress Annette O'Toole, is flying in from Los Angeles to be with him.

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

"It's the first time he will have ever missed a curtain in his entire life," Sternberg said, according to the Daily News. "He's never missed stage, screens in film or television. His understudy has never gone on in 40-plus years."
