Mac Taylor is on medical leave.

CSI:NY star Gary  Sinise was involved last Friday in a car accident, forcing him to  cancel a show with his Lt. Dan Band and two other planned  appearances.

Per the Gary Sinise Foundation’s website, the 57-year-old thesp was riding as a passenger  when the auto mishap occurred. He was not seriously hurt, but as a result, has  decided to forgo some upcoming appearances with the cover band he plays bass for  and which he named after his famous character from Forrest Gump.


 The Lt. Dan Band was scheduled to perform at a fundraiser in Martinsville  High School in Martinsville, Va., for Cpl. J.B. Kerns, a triple  amputee, but that concert has now been postponed. No word yet on a makeup  date.

Sinise was also unable to serve as Grand Marshall at a NASCAR Sprint Cup race  on Sunday. And last but not least, according to the Washington Post, the actor was set to appear at  D.C.’s Navy Memorial on Monday, where he was to be named an honorary chief petty  officer. The audience there was told that he was still in the hospital but  “doing well.”

“We thank you in advance for your understanding and hope you’ll join us in  wishing Gary a speedy recovery,” read the statement from the Gary Sinise  Foundation, which Sinise founded in 2010 to aid and honor members of the  military, veterans, first responders and their families.

Get well, Gary!
