Michael McKean is one unlucky man. But very blessed at the same time.

After being struck by a car and breaking his leg in New York City on Tuesday, the film and theater star took to Twitter to express his thanks and relief.

“Lucky man: best wife, great kids, awesome docs and nurses, priceless friends; a little overwhelmed by the sweet tweets. Love all y’all,” he wrote.

McKean’s wife Annette O’Toole tweeted appreciation as well:

“Thank you dear people for your love and support. @MJMcKean and I so appreciative. He is getting great care. Spirits are good. Grateful, we.”

The unfortunate news is that McKean will now have to step out of his starring role in the Broadway production of Gore Vidal’s The Best Man.

The good news is that McKea in stable condition after a vehicle jumped onto the sidewalk at West 86th Street and Broadway in Manhattan.

Not only that, he was about to recover his iPhone and send the above Tweet. You see, there's always a silver lining, now matter how dark the cloud.
