It's been a rough year for Mel Gibson. First, damaging messages he allegedly left ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva were leaked. Now, according to reports, Gibson was involved in a car accident Sunday near Malibu.
TMZ reports that the actor was driving his 2008 Maserati around 8:35 p.m. when he struck a hillside in the California town. According to the California Highway Police report, "For unknown reasons, Mr. Gibson steered his car to the right and struck the rock hillside. He stopped his car at the scene and was contacted by officers from the West Valley CHP Area."
Gibson was not hurt and "DUI is not suspected in the accident," according to officials. "Mr. Gibson supplied all the pertinent information to the officers at the scene, gave a statement and received a ride home from a friend," the report continues.
CHP spokesman Leland Tang spoke to TMZ about the incident and said Gibson's accident "was totally an unintentional act." No charges will be filed, and no citation was given in connection to the incident. "Gibson told officers in the field he did not know how the car drifted out of the lane and into the hillside," Tang added.
A rep for Gibson told People magazine that "he's fine." E! Online reports that Gibson had just returned from a fishing vacation in Fiji, where he was joined by his sons. Gibson is next expected to give a deposition in a custody case with Grigorieva over their 9-month-old daughter, Lucia, as well as the domestic-violence investigation.
