We're told Schimmel's 19-year-old daughter was driving at the time and Schimmel was in the passenger seat. Sources tell us the daughter swerved to avoid an accident in her lane and the car rolled over on to the side of the freeway.

Schimmel's daughter was hospitalized and is 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.

As for Schimmel, we're told he is still in the hospital and in "very serious" condition and his family is at his bedside.

Schimmel is perhaps best known for his work on "The Howard Stern Show."

Truth    

HIS BEST WORK WAS THE ON AIR ARGUMENTS HE ALWAYS HAD WITH HIS DAUGHTER JESSICA ON THE STERN SHOW. NOT THE SAME DAUGHTER IN THE CAR ACCIDENT. JESSICA IS 32 NOW. DAMN, TIME FLIES. SHE WAS LIKE MID-20'S OR SO WHEN SHE USED TO PHONE IN TO THE STERN SHOW ALL THE TIME ABOUT HIS DAD'S CHEATING AND HER BEST FRIEND MELISSA DATING HER DAD AND MARRIED HIM.

I hope he pulls through. Regardless of what some of you posted showing him in a bad light, I felt he was a kind hearted person. He was at the Baltimore improv several years ago when my Brother, who was also a stand up comic, suddenly died before going on stage to do his show. Mr. Schimmel gave the proceeds from his show to my Brothers' widow and three small children. My thoughts are with him and his family.

This is so sad! I have a sister who is 19 and a younger sister who is almost 10....it scares me every time my middle sister drives with my dad in the car. This guy's kids are going to be haunted by this tragedy for a long time. My thoughts and prayers go out to this guy and his family. Stay strong!
