"Spinal Tap" star Michael McKean has been released from a Manhattan hospital after a car crashed into him last week, breaking his leg -- but he's not out of the woods yet.

Michael just released a statement ... telling TMZ, he's out of St. Luke's Hospital where he spent the last week -- and has now moved to nearby Roosevelt Hospital for extensive rehab.

Michael was struck by an out-of-control car on the Upper West Side last Tuesday. He was one of 3 people injured in the accident.

McKean said, "I am heading into week two with renewed admiration for New York City's Emergency Medical Service staff, the NYPD, the staff of St. Luke's Hospital ... and all those with problems much greater than my own."

Hopefully, he also got his iPhone back.

Wrong place wrong time for the "Lone Wolf." Sounds serious. Hope he makes a full recovery. I always liked him.

Oh, that Spinal Tap and their whacky shena****ns. Trying to do something as simple as walk across the street and gets his leg broken by a runaway car. Funny stuff. Silly, silly guy.

Lay off about his phone. The one thing you want to do when you're hurt is tell your family. It was less about the iPhone and more about getting his loved ones close. When someone is hurt badly like he was, obviously there's shock involved. A person can kinda get "stuck on stupid" over a singular thought.

"... renewed admiration for ... all those with problems much greater than my own."

WOW. That says volumes about his character. A lot of celebs should listen and learn.
