The actor was forced to pull out of a series of promotional and charity appearances as he recovered from his injuries, but he's grateful to still be alive.
Appearing on Live! With Kelly & Michael on Thursday (01Nov12), he said, ""I landed at Reagan National (Airport), I got into the car and that's the last thing I remember until waking up in hospital.
""Somebody had plowed into us, going 50 miles an hour and I didn't feel it... I woke up in the hospital in a neck brace and had some neck and back injuries and I still have to deal with the residual effects of the accident. But I woke up and I'm back on the trail.
""I was able to get back to the hospital and eventually visit our wounded (soldiers), which I do on a regular basis.""
