Orlando Boom!

Actor Involved in Car Crash

10/12/2007 9:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Orlando BloomUPDATE: LAPD tells us that Orlando was driving the Matrix when he was cut off by another driver, causing him to crash into a parked Porsche Cayenne. Officers on the scene report speed was not a factor in the accident, nor were alcohol or drugs.

TMZ has learned that actor Orlando Bloom was involved in a wreck involving a car registered to Dariusz Wolski, the director of photography on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films. The crash took place around 2:15 AM near Fountain and Vista in Los Angeles.

According to a traffic collision report completed at the scene by LAPD, Bloom is listed as the driver of Wolski's black '03 Toyota Matrix.

TMZ shot Bloom earlier in the evening getting into a black Matrix at the Green Door in Hollywood. The cars involved include the Matrix and a Porsche Cayenne that was parked on the side of the street. We also spotted a bloody rag on the ground near the scene. One woman, who was sitting in the backseat of the car, suffered minor injuries.

Seriously    

was he drunk? Here's my thoughts on the diaglogue that goes through a celeb's mind as they prepare to drive themselves around in LA or Hollywood,

"Rum and Coke? Check. Blood alcohol level above 0.08? Check. Invalid drivers license? Check. In violation of probation/parole that is JUST about to expire? Double Check! Unable to comprehend the traffic lights and traffic signage? Check, check, check! Good, I am now prepared for traffic. Wish me luck!"

Is that Porsche what you call "NOT in bad shape"?! Man, that thing has $ome MAJOR damage! And from the amount of blood, I'd say that's the result of a facial cut. Looks like some idiot wasn't wearing their seatbelt!

This happened in front of my apartment! There were about 8 cars when FLYING down my street just before this happened, a bunch of SUVS that contained the paps, I suspect they CAUSED this accident! They were obviously chasing them to get photo's when this happened, literally 10 seconds after the crash there were close to 15 photog's and video cameras surrounding this car. They cut off the driver of the car and caused the accident. SHAME SHAME SHAME!

Saw the paps' footage, after the crash, and Orlando was never given a sobriety test, asked to blow, etc. What's that about? And why was he trying to run away from the scene of the crime, where he was leaving an injured passenger, if he had nothing to hide?!

Did that driver who caused the crash even stop to help?

It is sad that the victim has to be a suspect concerning drugs or alchohol.

A victim is a victim -

And the other car that was crashed into - now has to pay higher insurance.

All because someone wanted to cut someone off!!!!!!!!!!!1
