Rodney Allen Rippy — the chubby cheeked kid in those ’70s Jack in the Box ads — is in critical condition after a motorcycle crash … TMZ has learned.
According to his publicist, Rodney was thrown 10 feet in the air when he wrecked his dirt bike in North Carolina on Monday — but he didn’t go to the hospital until today when he had trouble breathing. Rodney — who’s now 42 — suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung. We’re told he’s recovering in the trauma unit.
Besides Jack in the Box, Rodney had a small role in one of the greatest movies of all time … “Blazing Saddles.”
This is my friend, please throw up a few prayers for him.
