Hours before his birthday celebration Monday night, Corey “Big Hoss” Harrison of “Pawn Stars” was injured in a motorcycle accident.

Corey sustained injuries that included a broken arm. “I also banged up my back and foot pretty bad,” he said.

It was so bad that he was unable to make the family celebration dinner at Joe Vicari’s Andiamo Italian Steakhouse at the downtown D Las Vegas. His father, Rick Harrison, and stepmother, DeAnna, had planned to surprise him with a cool motorcycle-themed cake.

Since Corey couldn’t make it his birthday party, Richard Wilk, the D’s social and celebrity director, delivered it to Corey’s home so that he didn’t miss out on birthday cake.

Corey tweeted @corey_harrison to fans and thanked them for their birthday greetings. He also posted more thanks and photographs on his Instagram @realcoreyharrison.

Corey turned 31 on Sunday. Happy Birthday, Corey, and best wishes for a speedy recovery.
