Star Trek: The Next Generation and Roots star and Reading Rainbow host LeVar Burton is recovering from minor injuries he received in a car crash on July 13. The Associated Press reports that the 52-year-old actor’s Mercedes was struck by a Scion driven by a 74-year-old woman, and three parked vehicles were damaged in the chain reaction.

Burton played the blind USS Enterprise chief engineer Geordi LaForge in seven seasons and four feature films, who used an advanced visor and, later, ocular implants to “see” the electromagnetic spectrum.
