For the first time, video of Ozzy Osbourne's ATV accident in December has been released, shown in the 5th episode of 'The Osbournes'. Watch a clip from KTLA.
Although a cameraman was not on hand to film the actual accident as it occurred, a lensman did get out to the crash site fast enough to film the dramatic aftermath.
The accident halted filming of the MTV reality series for five weeks and will delay the series' next new episode for six weeks, according to the New York Post.
"They had to shut down production out of respect for the family and for Ozzy while he recovered," an MTV spokesman told the New York Post. "We backed off and waited for Sharon and the rest of the family to feel more comfortable with it."
The next installment — episode six of the series' third season — will not be seen until Tuesday, April 6 (10:30 p.m. on MTV).
Ozzy, 55, broke his left collarbone, eight ribs and one vertebra after losing control of an ATV he uses on his vast country estate in Buckinghamshire, England.
Episode six on April 6 is expected to pick up with Ozzy recovering at home.
