A Porsche driven by Keanu Reeves “grazed” a photographer, who was taken by ambulance to the hospital, authorities said Tuesday.
The accident occurred about 7:30 p.m. Monday in the Rancho Palos Verdes section of Los Angeles, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
Reeves was not injured. No citations were issued.
“Reeves pulled out of a parking space parallel to the curb and grazed a paparazzo standing in the street in front of Mr. Reeves’s 1996 Porsche,” says a sheriff’s 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 nature of his injuries was not known.
This was the latest injury involving a celebrity and a photographer. Police say singer James Blunt also was involved in an accident last month in which a man’s foot was run over while Blunt tried to drive through a crowd of paparazzi.
Reeves’ rep was not immediately available for comment.
