A representative for Charlie Sheen confirms the actor "is extremely grateful for the safety features from Mercedes" that help saving his daughters from fatal injury in a car crash on December 12.
Sam and Lola, the young daughters of divorced couple Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards, are said to be "fine" after being involved in a car smash in Malibu on Friday, December 12. The girls' nanny, who was driving them in a Mercedes SUV when the accident occurred, was unhurt too.
Sam, 4, and Lola, 3, were being driven around by their nanny in a Mercedes SUV on the Pacific Coast Highway at around 3:30 P.M. when a Honda made a sudden left turn, cut them off and hit two other vehicles, People reports. Though so, the three of them managed to escape injury.
"Charlie told me that the girls are fine," the actor's publicist Stan Rosenfield has confirmed to People. "He said it could have been much worse. They were in their car seats, and he is extremely grateful for the safety features from Mercedes."
Speaking of the car smash, Sgt. Evans of the L.A. Sheriff's Department says, "The only person injured was the driver of the Honda. There was no crime committed." The Honda's driver was taken to a hospital, but the extent of the driver's injuries was not released.
Charlie Sheen's ex-wife Denise Richards, with whom he shares the custody of Sam and Lola, has yet commented on the car smash.
