LOS ANGELES (AP) _ David Hasselhoff and his wife suffered broken bones when the actor lost control of the motorcycle they were riding and hit a sidewalk curb, police said.
Strong gusty winds were blamed for the crash Thursday afternoon on a busy street on the city's West Side, police said.
The crash threw Hasselhoff against a light pole, while his wife, actress Pamela Bach, fell onto the shoulder of the road. Police said both were wearing helmets.
They were taken to UCLA Medical Center, where Hasselhoff, 50, was treated for possible lower back fractures, a broken rib and cuts and bruises, according to police. Bach, 39, was treated for a fractured ankle and broken wrist.
``They're in stable condition,'' said Warren Cowan, a publicist for Hasselhoff.
Cowan said Hasselhoff has canceled trips and interviews to promote the upcoming Fox movie ``Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.''
The actor, best known for portraying lifeguard Mitch Buchannon on the ``Baywatch'' TV series and various ``Baywatch'' movies and TV specials, also starred in the 1980s TV show ``Knight Rider.''
Bach was also a regular on ``Baywatch'' for several seasons. She and Hasselhoff have two daughters.
