Keanu Reeves 'Grazes' Paparazzi With Porsche
RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif. (March 20, 2007) -- First it was James Blunt, who allegedly ran over an autograph seeker's foot in the run up to the Oscars. Next, Lindsay Lohan appeared to have bumped a photographer last week in New York City and now Keanu Reeves has become the latest celeb to have a close encounter with a bystander from behind the wheel.
Reeves was in Rancho Palos Verdes at about 7:30 PM on Monday evening when the accident happened. While leaving the 30100 block of Avenida Tranquila, Reeves "grazed" a photographer according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
"Mr. Reeves pulled out of a parking space parallel to the curb and grazed a paparazzo. The paparazzo was standing in the street in front of Mr. Reeves 1996 Porsche when he was grazed by the car," the Sheriff's Department said in a 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 statement continued.
No further information was available about the photographer's injuries.
Earlier today, authorities told Access Hollywood "it appeared the photographer [was] at fault because he was standing in the middle of the street."
No charges have been filed against Reeves or the photographer but an investigation into the incident continues.
