Comedian Robert Schimmel was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident in Arizona on Thursday, August 26, 2010. Schimmel is a regular contributor on “The Howard Stern Show” and a cancer survivor. The specifics of his injuries are currently unknown, but he reportedly remains in “serious condition” at a local hospital.
Schimmel’s 19-year-old daughter was operating the vehicle at the time of the crash. The comedian was in the passenger seat. His daughter apparently swerved to avoid a collision in her driving lane and the automobile rolled over on to the side of the freeway.
Schimmel’s daughter is reportedly in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery. His 11-year-old son was also in the car; he was released without injuries the same day.
