Phoenix's car overturned on a canyon road and collided with another vehicle after his brakes went out, but there were no reports of injury
Golden Globe winner actor Joaquin Phoenix got involved in a serious car accident Thursday Jan 26th. Fortunately, the star is okay.
The accident happened when Phoenix was driving eastbound above Sunset Strip about 2:50 p.m. when he realized his brakes were not working. Loosing control, his car overturned and hit another vehicle also headed eastbound.
Luckily, the actor was wearing his seat belt and was able to walk away from the scene after a passerby helped him out of the car, his publicist, Susan Patricola said.
