Michael McKean

Crushed by Car

Grasping for iPhone

Moments after "This is Spinal Tap" actor Michael McKean got slammed by an out-of-control driver, he was strapped to a stretcher with one thought running through his mind -- where's my iPhone??!!!

McKean, aka Lenny from "Laverne & Shirley," suffered a broken leg when the car hit him Tuesday in Manhattan ... which is NOT funny.

What is funny is this video of McKean desperately asking for his iPhone, even as EMTs are treating him. The second he got it, McKean started tapping on the screen -- despite being strapped into a neck brace and stretcher. EMTs actually had to pry the phone out of his hands.

Hit by a car? There's an app for that.

Gee tmz did you ever think that maybe he wanted his phone to call his wife and let her know what happened? Morons!

I don't understand why they wouldn't allow him to have his phone. Maybe he needed to let someone know he was in an accident?

He was walking to his show, to perform. Since he's never missed a curtain call in his career, I'm confident he was concerned with contacting his production.

Jesus, folks. His name is not Lenny. Don't pretend to care about his recovery if you cant call him by his given name.

He could've made a call using his bluetooth but that's if his assets had one.

Maybe he was in the middle of an epic game of Words With Friends...

I don't understand how "there's an app for that" applies to this story when he was trying to call someone??

Having been in this serious type of accident myself - I can say ... Micheal went into survival mode and wanted to call his wife.
He didn't want THE PHONE, he wanted his wife.

Too bad there wasnt an app for brains because everyone who works for tmz clearly doesnt have any and is in serious need of some.
