’90s MTV Host Matt Pinfield Hit by a Car, Hospitalized With Broken Leg and Cracked Skull

“I can tell you he is very grateful (and lucky) to be alive,” Pinfield’s rep tells TheWrap

Former MTV host Matt Pinfield has been hospitalized with a broken leg and cracked skull after being hit by a speeding car on Monday night in Los Angeles.

“He was in an accident — he was hit by a car and was in bad shape,” a representative for Pinfield told TheWrap via email Thursday. “His leg is broken in a couple of places and he cracked his skull open.”

The ’90s MTV personality’s spokesperson said that the driver who struck him “did stop” and was “very distraught, as you can imagine.”

As his friend Mike Jakubow shared on Instagram Wednesday (see photo below), Pinfield is still in the hospital, but his rep said that he’s in “good spirits,” even after a “couple of surgeries” and starting physical therapy.

“I can tell you he is very grateful (and lucky) to be alive,” his rep added.

Pinfield first appeared on MTV in 1992 on an episode of “The Real World.” In 1995, he was brought on to host the channel’s “120 Minutes,” a show about alternative music. He would go on to host several others, including “MattRock,” “Pinfield Suite,” “Pinfield Presents,” “Rocks Off,” “Say What?” and “MTV Live.” In 2016, Pinfield published his memoir, “All These Things That I’ve Done: My Insane, Improbable Rock Life.”
