Jerry Seinfeld's Crazy Car Crash

Jerry Seinfeld is a very lucky man -- besides for the obvious reasons.

The comedian walked away unharmed from a pretty nasty car crash on Saturday. According to the New York Post, Jerry was driving his two-door 1967 Fiat BTM in East Hampton, NY, when his brakes failed. He thought fast and reportedly tried the emergency brake but, when that failed,too, he had to swerve of the road to keep the car from getting on to the highway. The vintage Italian vehicle flipped over, but, amazingly, Jerry walked away without even needing medical attention.

"He was a little shocked when he walked in and it started to dawn on him what happened," his wife, Jessica, told the newspaper. "It could have been a lot worse, obviously, and thank God it wasn't. He's fine."

And Jerry, of course, manage to keep his sense of humor regarding the accident. "Because I know there are kids out there, I want to make sure they all know that driving without braking is not something I recommend, unless you have professional clown training or a comedy background, as I do," he said. "It is not something I plan to make a habit."

Take it easy, Jer. Maybe invest in a Ford Echo.
