Mel Gibson in Car Accident

Mel Gibson has been in a car accident. According to TMZ, the crash occurred yesterday in Malibu at 8:35PM when Gibson lost control of his car on Malibu Canyon Road. He was not injured.

Law enforcement officials say, "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."

CHP Public Information Officer Leland Tang added, "Gibson told officers in the field he did not know how the car drifted out of the lane and into the hillside."

Tang said his officers followed up by asking Gibson if he was on a cell phone and he said no. Tang adds officers also asked Gibson if he had dozed off "but he did not give a firm 'yes' or 'no'." Gibson just repeated several times, "I don't know how the car left the roadway."

The report goes on, "Mr. Gibson supplied all the pertinent information to the officers at the scene, gave a statement, and received a ride home from a friend."

Seems innocent enough, but a little sketchy that he didn’t answer whether or not he’d fallen asleep or not.
