"Big Time Rush" star Logan Henderson was in a nasty motorcycle wreck last week and might have been saved by his jacket, according to TMZ.

Sources told the website the Nickelodeon boy bander was cruising through the Hollywood and Vine intersection on his way to the studio when a car turned right in front of him.

Henderson swerved at the last second to avoid an accident and was violently tossed off his bike in the process.

Remarkably, he was able to stand afterward. The poor dear was scraped and bruised from bouncing across the pavement. But he emerged in better shape than one might expect, thanks in part to his Marc Jacobs jacket, which he says saved his back from becoming a mangled mess.

Sounds like an endorsement deal in the making ... not that anyone in Hollywood would milk a near-disaster for cash.

Henderson was OK, but his bike didn't fare as well. It's in the shop for the foreseeable future.
