Keanu Reeves accidentally grazed a photographer with his car while pulling out of a parking space in a southern California community.
Keanu Reeves hits a photographer. The actor was leaving a parking space in the residential area of Avenida Tranquila near Los Verdes Golf Course in Southern California on Monday night March 19th when the alleged incident occurred.
"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 explained. "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."
While police are investigating the incident, no charges were filed. The extent of the photographer's injuries was unknown. Reeves, on the other way around, was not hurt.
Reeves, 42, is best known for his role as the hero, Neo, of "The Matrix" movies in which Earth has been overrun by machines and humans are trying to reclaim the planet.
