WEST HOLLYWOOD—Comedian Jimmy Kimmel got in a car accident on Thursday, February 1 when he made a wrong turn and collided into an oncoming vehicle.
The late night talk show host got into a car accident in West Hollywood, near the Chateau Marmont Hotel. Kimmel reportedly made a left turn onto Sunset Boulevard at an intersection that was a right turn only. He was immediately hit by an oncoming Audi and his car smashed into the side of the vehicle. Both Kimmel’s and the other driver’s air bags deployed.
Authorities arrived on the scene to assist both drivers and take a police report. The vehicles were moved and traffic resumed in the region.
According to TMZ, there were no reports of any serious injuries from the collision. Kimmel’s BMW SUV and the Audi were badly damaged by the impact.
He made headlines earlier this week after an interview with porn star Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had sexual relations with President Donald Trump a few years ago, before his presidency. During the interview, Kimmel asked about the alleged affair, to which Clifford repeatedly denied. Viewers criticized Kimmel for berating her with the questions.
Kimmel returned to work hosting his talk show later in the day. He is scheduled to return as the host for the upcoming 90th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 4.
