Hasselhoff, wife injured in cycle wreck
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Former "Baywatch" star David Hasselhoff and his wife Pamela were injured in a motorcycle accident blamed on a strong gust of wind, police said Friday.
The two were riding along Sepulveda Boulevard on Hasselhoff's 2003 Harley Davidson near a freeway overpass Thursday afternoon when the wind gust caused him to lose control of the bike. As he was trying to regain control, the motorcyle ran into a curb, throwing the couple from the bike, with Hasselhoff flying into a light pole and his wife landing on the soft shoulder of the road.
The actor fractured his lower back and broke several ribs. His wife sustained a fractured left ankle and right wrist.
The two are being cared for at UCLA Medical Center, where they are listed in stable condition.
