A popular former MTV video deejay suffered broken bones and cuts to his head after he was struck by a car in Los Angeles.

Matt Pinfield, 57, was hospitalized Monday following the accident, his rep told TMZ.

The New Jersey-born entertainer reportedly sustained injuries to one of his legs — which was broken in two different spots — as well as lacerations to his head after being hit by the vehicle, but is currently in stable condition after undergoing surgery.

His head injuries required stitches, according to the celebrity gossip website.

Pinfield, who has also worked for VH1, garnered a tremendous following during the mid-1990s as the host of “120 Minutes,” an MTV program focusing on alternative rock.

He returned as the host of “120 Minutes” in 2011 when the series was reprised by MTV. The reboot of the show lasted until early 2013.

Pinfield, who was born in East Brunswick, made a name for himself earlier in his career as a host on the New Jersey alternative station WHTG, where he worked for a decade during the 1980s and 1990s.

He’s reportedly in good spirits in the aftermath of the car accident.
