Action movie actor, bodybuilder, and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger crashed his SUV in a major car accident involving four vehicles.
Schwarzenegger was the governor of California from the Republican Party from 2003 until 2011.
Crash from One of Schwarzenegger’s Action Films
The four-vehicle car crash occurred on Friday afternoon, at about 4:35 p.m. on Sunset and Allenford in Los Angeles, according to LAPD officer Drake Madison, as cited by Fox News.
The “Terminator” and former governor of America’s most populous state appears to have been lucky enough to have gotten away unscathed.
Madison revealed even though it was a major traffic accident, only one woman had to be sent to a hospital as a result of the crash, having suffered an abrasion.
According to the report by TMZ, Schwarzenegger clashed with a red Toyota Prius at the intersection of LA’s Sunset Boulevard and Allenford Avenue in Brentwood.
The former GOP governor of California was behind the wheel of a black GMC Yukon SUV.
As a result of the collision, Schwarzenegger’s SUV began to roll and ended up landing on top of the Toyota Prius at first, before eventually rolling into a Porsche Cayenne.
Photos from the chain crash showed the large SUV on top of the two other cars, while Schwarzenegger himself could be seen standing near the crash site.
While the long-time Hollywood actor suffered no injuries whatsoever, it was the female driver of the Prius who was hurt and had to be hospitalized.
A Schwarzenegger representative told Fox News the former governor’s “concern” is about the health of the woman who got injured.
The TMZ reported cited an eyewitness as saying Schwarzenegger’s car crash seemed like a “stunt” from one of his numerous Hollywood action movies, describing it as “crazy.”

Another Driver was Making a U-Turn
The report also revealed that during the car accident, Schwarzenegger was together with his long-time friend, Jake Steinfeld.
During Schwarzenegger’s time as governor of California, 63-year-old Steinfeld was the head of the governor’s council on physical fitness in the state of California.
A spokesman for Schwarzenegger confirmed to the LA Times that it was the former seven-time Mr. Olympia who was driving the SUV.
The LAPD ruled out any involvement of alcohol or drugs in the accident and made it clear no arrests were to be made, as cited by BBC World.
According to a police report revealed by CBS Los Angeles, Schwarzenegger was advancing through a “red arrow” signal in order to turn left when he crashed into the Toyota Prius, whose driver was making a U-turn.
The crash involving Schwarzenegger is still under investigation. His spokesman made it clear the actor and former governor had spoken with the injured woman, whose condition isn’t life-threatening.
