Dax Shepard requires surgery after motorcycle accident

BANG! NEWS – Dax Shepard “needs surgery” after an accident on a racetrack in California.

The daredevil actor suffered four broken ribs and his clavicle’s (collarbone) broken in three places after he went over the handlebars in a motorcycle accident.

Speaking on his Armchair Expert podcast, he recalled, “I was passing six guys on Sonoma Raceway on a motorcycle and I was braking very, very hard – hard enough that the back wheel was off the ground for a good 100 yards.

“I was totally at blame. I thought I would be able to slide in between, but someone turned in and I was already under full brake and I couldn’t go anywhere.

“I clipped their bumper and I went over the handlebars and I landed pretty hard.”

He continued, “I’ve been at the hospital for seven hours today.

“The final tally was four broken ribs, the clavicle’s broken in three places, and I need surgery.”

Following the podcast episode airing, the 45-year-old star took to Instagram to thank the listeners for their concern and get well messages.

He wrote, “Thank you Armcherries for all the well wishes and concern. I’m in one piece and spirits are high. Sorry for causing concern. (sic)”

In May, Dax’s wife Kristen Bell, 40, revealed her spouse was injured when a vehicle he was travelling in fell over and crushed his hand.

The Frozen star explained that Dax was worried about telling her about the accident because he did not want to get in “trouble”.

She added, “He didn’t call me. He drove home… and the first thing he said when he walked in the door is, ‘I just don’t want to be in trouble’. Which is crazy because he’s never in trouble with me. I mean, I’ll let you know if I’m disappointed in your actions but I’m an adult, and he’s an adult. I said, ‘You’re not in trouble, but it’s not the smartest move you could have made’.”
