Spinal Tap star Michael Mckean has taken his first steps since he was knocked down by a car on Tuesday.

McKean takes first steps since car crash

The veteran funnyman broke his leg and suffered facial lacerations after a car reportedly mounted a kerb in New York and struck him.

He was taken to St. Luke's Hospital and returned to his Twitter page late on Wednesday to assure fans he's recovering well.

And now his actress wife Annette O'Toole has revealed McKean is tentatively walking again following the accident.

In a post on her Twitter page, she writes: "Surgery went great. He took 4 steps just now. Sitting in chair. Very good attitude."

The accident forced McKean to pull out of the Tony Award-nominated Broadway revival of Gore Vidal's The Best Man indefinitely and he has been replaced by James Lecesne.
