Garrison Co-Star Miller Calls Wreck "Horrific Mistake"

9/14/2007 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The "Prison Break" cast has remained fairly silent about the deadly DUI car crash caused by co-star Lane Garrison ... until now.


On Monday's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Wentworth Miller talks about the tragic accident, calling it "a horrific mistake" made by "a very sweet kid." He doesn't fully defend Garrison though, saying, "There are no excuses. Nothing is going to bring that boy back ... I was really proud of him that he stepped forward and took full responsibility."

On Monday, Garrison was moved from the California Institute for Men to Twin Towers jail, where he will remain until official sentencing on October 31.

Hey, TMZ -- How' bout "Except for Muse Watson ... The "Prison Break" cast has remained fairly silent about the deadly DUI car crash caused by co-star Lane Garrison ... until now."

At least give props to Muse Watson, aka Charles Westmoreland from "Prison Break, Season 1" for standing up for Garrison during his hearing. After all, you guys were the ones who reported it "as it happened."

I couldnt of put it better myself what Miller said.

He simply made a horrible mistake that he will have to live with for the rest of his life. But I dont care what anyone says but everyone deserves a second chance in life, I mean I know the kid that died wont get another chance but come on put it this way I know Lane shouldnt of drove that night but I am so sorry but the teens shouldnt of got into the car in the first place.

I met Lane when he 1st moved to L.A. he was just a sweet innocent 18 year old kid from Texas who came from a broken home and troubled background, yet despite that he didn't drink, do drugs or even have sex! He was committed to the Lord and his faith. I realize he must be held accountable and "pay" for his poor decisions that night but I believe he already is "paying" for them. He's a good guy with a good heart and no amount of prison time will ever punish him more then he is punishing himself right now. He will live to regret that night for the rest of his life (in or out of prison) and not because he got caught or because he might go to prison but because he took a life, he understands the finality of that and would give anything to change that night. My heart goes out to the family of the victim and would hope that they somehow work through the hate and realize that Lane also has a family that is suffering just as they are suffering for many reasons. I can't pretend that I know what the answer is or what the proper punishment might be but I do know if he is sentenced to Prison, they might as well sentence him to death because a part of him will die there. Not to mention the fact that we all know a cute, young, 5'7" white male will not fair well in prison. The entire ordeal is a tragedy and a real shame.

This was an accident! Many of us have gotten behind the wheel of a car intoxicated at some point in our lives... let's be honest here.

Jail is definitely not the right place for a man with no prior history and a good heart. Everyone deserves a 2nd chance.
