Actor and fitness personality Jake Steinfeld was also seen with Schwarzenegger at the accident site.

According to The Straits Times (ST), Schwarzenegger did not sustain any injuries.

But the driver of the red Prius was not as lucky and appeared to be bleeding heavily from her head.

She was later taken to a hospital, and Schwarzenegger reportedly checked on her after the accident.

4 vehicles involved in crash

In a news release, the Los Angeles Police Department said the accident occurred at the junction of West Sunset Boulevard and Allenford Avenue, reported CNN.

They said 4 vehicles were involved in the crash. The woman conveyed to the hospital had suffered a head abrasion.

According to the police, alcohol or drugs were not suspected to be a factor in this collision.

However, TMZ reports that the accident was believed to be caused by Schwarzenegger, who turned left when the left turn arrow was red.

No arrests were made at the accident scene.

Schwarzenegger’s spokesperson later told People that he was “fine” after the accident, and his only concern now is for the injured woman.

Always be vigilant on roads

Such accidents are a reminder for all motorists to always be vigilant on roads and to obey road traffic rules.

Even though the accident above involved 4 vehicles, it is relatively fortunate that only 1 person was injured.

MS News wishes the female driver a speedy recovery ahead.
