Mel Gibson involved in single car crash in Malibu
LOS ANGELES — The California Highway Patrol says Mel Gibson crashed his sportscar into a Malibu hillside but was not injured.
The agency says Gibson crashed his 2008 Maserati into a hillside on southbound Malibu Canyon Road around 8:35 p.m. Sunday. Gibson’s spokesman, Alan Nierob, says the actor is doing fine.
Police say Gibson was alone in the car and that alcohol was not suspected in the crash. A news release states that a friend picked up the 54-year-old actor-director from the scene.
No further details were released and it was unclear how much damage Gibson’s car sustained.
The accident was first reported Monday by celebrity website TMZ.
