Former JACKASS star Bam Margera is recovering after cracking his head open when he drove a car into a moat.

The 25-year-old prankster ended up with severe whiplash and 12 staples in his head after the incident earlier this month (08AUG05), which occurred while he was shooting for MTV CRIBS.

He says, "I've broken my tailbone, wrists and legs over 10 times and that definitely doesn't equal the pain of cracking my head open."
