*Reps for Grammy-nominated jazz saxophonist Boney James say he has canceled a show after being struck by a suspected drunken driver in Long Beach, Calif.
James was said to be driving home from a jazz festival in Newport Beach on Saturday when his car was rear-ended while he was stopped in traffic on the 405 freeway, reports the Associated Press.
Passers-by pulled him from the car. He was hospitalized with a fractured jaw, two broken teeth and a gash on his chin that needed 14 stitches.
He has been released from the hospital but canceled a Friday show in Columbia, S.C.
James is married to Lily Mariye, who played nurse Lily Jarvik on TV’s “ER.”
