Sandra Bullock Whacked in Mass

4/19/2008 5:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sandra Bullock and her husband, Jesse James, were hit by a drunken driver last night in Gloucester, MA.

They were being driven to their hotel in Eastern Point at around 11 PM when a gray Subaru station wagon jumped lanes and smashed into their front end, police said. The Boston Herald first broke the story.

The culprit, 64-year-old Lucille Gatchell, was busted and charged with Operating Under the Influence of Liquor -- in our world, that's DUI. She blew 2 1/2 times the legal limit. She was also charged with a Mark Twain violation, which means crossing the white line.

No one was hurt.

That isn't a very good title for this story. They all could have been seriously hurt by this. Please change it to better suit the story. Or better yet, just fire your staff members & let us write them.

Raise the taxes on liquor (like cigarettes), and I gaurantee it will curtail some of the drunks on the road!

Glad Sandra and Jesse are OK.

Thank goodness they weren't hurt. Trust TMZ to come up with a disrespectful title like that when it comes to something tragic and sad for those who remember their own loved ones killed by drunk drivers. I can imagine the headline if the couple had been senior celebrities, no doubt some other derogatory ageism caption.

Spell Check.    

Massachusetts calls crossing the white line a "Mark Twain" violation?
Why not a "Ted Kennedy" violation?
Or a "Joan Kennedy" violation?
Or a "Patrick Kennedy" violation?

I've known a couple of people that were killed by drunk drivers & this title is too disrespectful. I hope no one has to go through a tragedy like this. Yes, they are okay...but the outcome could have been fatal. After getting into any kind of accident, you can still be emotionally scarred by this. So out of respect for Sandra & Jesse & for everyone that has lost a loved one due to drunk driving....change the title.

Thanks!

What the hell were they doing in Gloucester? The only thing up there is the memorial for the Andrea Gail and a Lobster Hut.

Freaking Gloucester residents---they're all drunk...this lady was a grandmother and 2 and half times the limit, driving around like its just another day in the fishing village.

Yeah, change it from Mark Twain to a Kennedy infraction like the person said...my god they're all drunks
