Seinfeld was out alone in his 1967 Fiat BTM when the brakes failed, the Associated Press reports. After swerving to avoid a more serious accident, his Fiat flipped, coming to a stop within a few yards of the highway. An investigation determined that the wreck was caused by a mechanical failure.
Besides being a little shaken up, 53 year-old Seinfeld fortunately suffered no serious injuries during the accident and was able to return to his East Hampton home. Luckily, he was able to walk away from the wreck with his sense of humor still intact--he made sure to inform all kids out there that, “driving without braking is not something [he] recommend[s], unless you have professional clown training or a comedy background, as [he does].”
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld is reportedly recovering from minor injuries after a rollover accident on Thursday.
