Being as clumsy as his character as Mr. Bean, Rowan Atkinson experienced a car accident in Aspen, Colorado on Thursday, December 20.
Known for his eccentric and clumsy character in famous British television series, "Mr. Bean", Rowan Atkinson apparently couldn't get rid of the clumsiness of his character as he accidentally backed his rented SUV into a woman's parked car. According to reports, the incident took place in Aspen, Colorado, US, during a Christmas trip on Thursday, December 20.
Colorado police said that the British comedian was moving his car from a parking space when he struck Volkswagen Jetta. Sgt Dan Davis explained the situation saying, "He was backing out of a parking spot and didn't see the car behind him. There was a little bit of damage to the car. He put a ding in it."
Despite causing damage with his careless driving, the leading actor in "Mr. Bean's Holiday" escaped from trouble since the police released him without issuing a citation. Reportedly, he was only suggested to offer to pay for the damage.
