Only, so we took some creative liberties there.
A Porsche driven by Keanu Reeves merely “grazed” a photographer, who was still taken by ambulance to the hospital, authorities said Tuesday.
The accident occurred about 7:30 p.m. Monday in the Rancho Palos Verdes section of Los Angeles, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
Reeves, who is not engaged, and may be the male, actor equivalent of Ashlee Simpson, was not injured. Thank God. No citations were issued.
“Reeves pulled out of a parking space parallel to the curb and grazed a paparazzo standing in the street in front of Mr. Reeves’s 1996 Porsche,” says a sheriff’s statement.
“The man fell to the ground. Paramedics were summoned and treated the man at the scene. He was then transported via ambulance to a local hospital for further treatment.”
The nature of his injuries was not known – but the real issue at hand is why Keanu Reeves is driving a 1996 model if he’s supposedly this hot shot actor. Guarantee the Olsen twins have nicer rides than that.
Anyway, this was the latest injury involving a celebrity and a photographer. Police say singer James Blunt also was involved in an accident last month in which a man’s foot was run over while Blunt tried to drive through a crowd.
Nicole Richie, for her part, doesn’t hit anybody, but likes to park in the HOV lane facing the wrong way. Janice Dickinson, meanwhile, was recently on the receiving end of a car crash.
And, as some of you might remember, Lane Garrison…
Oh Forget it. Reeves was not available for comment.
