Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt has been hospitalised after he was hit by a car while crossing a road in Beverly Hills, California.

The socialite was walking near a busy intersection on Friday when he was knocked down.

He was taken to a nearby medical center and his representative fears Von Anhalt may have suffered a broken leg, reports TMZ.com.

It's been a tough few months for Von Anhalt - he was diagnosed with viral disease shingles in August, while his wife is still bedridden following a series of hospitalizations since breaking her hip in a fall last summer.
