Updated November 6, 2017 19.0k views22 items

Motorcycles tend to be involved in more accidents than cars, whether their drivers are speeding or cars simply don't see the smaller vehicles in the road. So perhaps it's not surprising that celebrities in motorcycle accidents are a fairly common occurrence. Several famous actors, musicians, and athletes have been involved in motorcycle crashes. Thankfully, these stars survived the incidents - some with mere scratches, others with serious injuries.

Who will you find on this list of famous people in motorcycle accidents? Arnold Schwarzenegger needed 15 stitches in his lip after he collided into another vehicle that was backing out. His son Patrick was riding sidecar at the time, but only sustained minor injuries. Jay Leno was involved in a motorcycle accident while filming a stunt for his series Jay Leno's Garage. In 2000, actress Lauren Hutton was involved in a motorcycle accident that resulted in two broken arms, two broken legs, three broken ribs, and a punctured lung. Other stars listed here include Keanu Reeves, Bob Dylan, and Liam Neeson.
