UPDATE: Officer Larkin with the LAPD tells Hollyscoop, "The collision was minor and information was exchanged, therefore, no police report was taken."
Amanda Bynes, former Nickelodeon star and current failure to the Department of Motor Vehicles system, has reportedly found herself in yet another car accident. The news comes after the retired actress has been accused of a cornucopia of other driving violations, including hit-and-runs and a DUI.
TMZ reports the news, and – according to the report – she may actually not be at fault for this one.
Here’s how it went down…
Bynes was driving a rental car in the San Fernando Valley on Monday night. It was about 8:00 p.m. when another car rear-ended her.
For starters, the reason that Amanda was driving a rental in the first place was because her BMW was in the shop because of another mishap. The fact that she is able to rent a car is surprising in and of itself.
The driver that rear-ended Amanda claims that she pulled a reckless move in her rental, which didn’t allow enough time to react and avoid the crash.
Police reportedly showed up on the scene and – amazingly – it doesn’t appear that Amanda fled before they got there. No tickets were given out.
If you are keeping tabs on all the accidents Bynes has found herself in since January of 2012, then you might be running out of room on the page. The former actress was arrested for DUI in April and has been accused of three it-and-runs.
Most recently, a woman by the name of Kisa has accused Bynes for bumping into the back of her car on Ventura Boulevard and refusing to cooperate earlier this month.
L.A. Police Department Officer Larkin has confirmed with Hollyscoop that the case will moving forward.
“After gathering facts for the case, there is substantial evidence that Amanda Bynes committed a hit-and-run,” Officer Larkin said in a statement.
The case’s future will be determined by the City Attorney’s office.
Forget the Mayhem Guy and the Gecko, with her increasing dense driving record, insurance companies need to hire Amanda as their next spokesperson.
