Comedian who played Tom the Innkeeper in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban suffers crack cervix and punctured lung in collision

The actor Jim Tavar, who appeared in the film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, is in intensive care after a head-on auto crash left him with a ruined neck and punctured lung.

He also suffered 15 ruined rib, breaks in his right leg and a fractured breastbone, his wife said in a post on his Facebook account. Her meaning did not give details about where the gate-crash had taken place, although the actor expends most of his time in Los Angeles.

This is Laura here. Now that his family have been informed, Jim has asked me to let you all know that he was involved in a serious automobile collision yesterday, a head-on conflict, she wrote.

Hes currently in ICU intensive charge. He has 15 cracked rib, ruptures in both breastbones, a pierced lung, multiple breaks in his right leg, and a separated neck.

Hes had two blood transfusions so far and is about to go in for his first surgery. This is for real , not a movie character. Please impound some good beliefs for him as he campaigns his way out of this.

A host of fellow entertainers cast their best wishes to Tavar after sounding the news.
