Andy Warhol's film-making partner Paul Morrissey is recovering in hospital after he was hit by a truck on a New York street.
The 71-year-old Chelsea Girls and Trash director was struck by the rental U-Haul van as he crossed 86th street in Manhattan on 8 June (09).
A source tells the New York Post, "He's in a Manhattan rehabilitation facility. He can walk and talk but he may have lost some short term memory."
Friends claim Morrissey has been trying to keep his accident a secret to avoid worrying his 96-year-old mother.
A pal tells the Post, "He instructed friends to tell her he hadn't called her in five days because he had laryngitis."
