Jay Leno Survived Flipping Car In A Heart-Stopping Crash

Former Tonight Show host Jay Leno was in a terrible rollover car crash with with 80-year-old stunt driver Bob Riggle.

The two were at¬†Irwindale Speedway in California filming a segment for Leno’s CNBC show, Jay Leno’s Garage.

The goal was to get the car with 2,500-horsepower vehicle up on its back two wheels. Riggle is known for having perfected the stunt for decades.

“This has been on my bucket list since I was a kid, ever since it stood up in 1965,” Leno said.

Riggle hit the gas and the car’s front wheels shoot up, but as they navigate a sharp turn, he loses control and they flip multiple times.
