Comedian Pete Davidson reportedly crashed a vehicle into a Beverly Hills home over the weekend after speeding through a neighborhood with his girlfriend, Chase Sui-Wonders.
Law enforcement says that the accident happened around 11 p.m. on Saturday when he was driving a Mercedes “at a high rate of speed” in Beverly Hills, according to sources that spoke with TMZ.
Something happened that caused Davidson to lose control of the vehicle, which led to the car flying over the curb and destroying a fire hydrant before ramming into the side of a house.
Photos obtained by the publication suggest that Davidson must have regained enough control of the vehicle to reduce its speed enough that the car did not fully penetrate into the home.
The photos did show that there was considerable damage to the side of the home and the landscaping. The fire hydrant was completely taken out.
The report said that neither person in the vehicle had been charged with anything at this point, although that could change. Law enforcement did not suspect that substances were involved.
Lt. Christopher Coulter of the Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed that the accident happened but did not state who was driving.
Earlier this year, comedian Jay Leno was involved in a motorcycle accident weeks after being hospitalized for burns sustained in a garage fire.
The 72-year-old comedian made the revelation while speaking with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, saying the accident happened January 17, but he was reluctant to make a big deal about it because of how recently the fire incident occurred.
“That was the first accident. OK? Then just last week, I got knocked off my motorcycle,” Leno told the Las Vegas Review-Journal when he was asked in late January about how he was recovering from the fire. “So I’ve got a broken collarbone. I’ve got two broken ribs. I’ve got two cracked kneecaps.”
When the interviewer expressed concern, Leno was quick to reassure him that he was doing well. “I’m OK!” Leno exclaimed. “I’m OK, I’m working. I’m working this weekend.”
The former “Tonight Show” host explained how he was test driving a vintage 1940 Indian motorcycle when he got pulled off by a wire strung across the parking lot. He recalled noticing a leaking gas line, which prompted him to check it out.
“So I turned down a side street and cut through a parking lot, and unbeknownst to me, some guy had a wire strung across the parking lot but with no flag hanging from it,” Leno explained. “So, you know, I didn’t see it until it was too late. It just clothesline[d] me and, boom, knocked me off the bike.”
“The bike kept going, and you know how that works out,” he recounted.
