Jeffrey Katzenberg can't drive right now but he's still a driven man ... because he won't let a pesky car accident that landed him in a hospital O.R. keep him from running his super successful company.
We've learned Jeffrey was driving his Tesla in Bev Hills Monday when he got in a bad accident ... so bad he was taken to a nearby hospital.
We're told doctors operated on his arm and when they were done they put the appendage in a full cast.
Painful for sure, but Tuesday morning the DreamWorks Animation CEO was back at work, holding meetings and making deals ... pain be damned.
You wanna be a big shot ... work through the pain, and keep on working.
