Arnold Schwarzenegger was involved in a car crash on Friday afternoon in Los Angeles that involved four vehicles and left his enormous black SUV perched on top of another car, leaving one other driver with a head injury.
The former governor, 74, was driving his GMC Yukon SUV and was about to turn onto busy Sunset Boulevard, about half-a-mile from his home in the Brentwood, when he smashed into a red Toyota Prius at 4:35pm.
The Prius was said to have been making a U-turn in the road when the collision occurred. The impact of the crash was so severe that the Prius' airbags deployed as a result of the collision as did those in Schwarzenegger's vehicle.
The star's SUV then started to roll onto a white Porsche Cayenne that was directly behind Schwarzenegger's.
Law enforcement are conducting a full investigation into how the accident occurred. Although no tickets have been issued, one police source said they believed the accident was the fault of the Terminator actor, who was attempting to make a left turn but did not wait for a left-turn arrow at the intersection of Sunset and Allenford Avenue.
Police told TMZ that Schwarzenegger was making a left turn while the arrow for a left turn was still red. He was not ticketed by police and uninjured in the crash.
He was concerned about the woman who was injured, checked on her and spoke to police officers and firefighters who were quickly on scene.
Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to DailyMail.com that no arrests were made and the crash did not appear to involve any form of DUI.
“Neither alcohol or drugs are suspected as a factor in this collision. All parties remained at scene. No further information will be made available,” police said in a statement.
Images posted to social media showed the tire on the passenger's side of Schwarzenegger's SUV firmly on the hood of the Prius, smashing its headlights and sending debris into the road.
The female driver was hurt in the crash and was seen to be bleeding heavily from her head although her injury is not believed to be serious. She was taken by ambulance to hospital.
