Mel Gibson in

Car Crash

8/16/2010 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson acclimated back into L.A. life by getting into a car accident yesterday ... this according to law enforcement sources.

0709-mel-gibson-ex-getty-01
Sources tell TMZ it happened at 8:35 PM in Malibu.  Gibson, we're told, lost control of his car and ended up striking the rocky hillside on Malibu Canyon Road.

Gibson was driving a 2008 Maserati, which had to be towed from the scene.

Hours before the crash -- photogs shot footage of Gibson driving the Maserati around Malibu (see video above). 

According to the CHP report, obtained by TMZ, "For unknown reasons, Mr. Gibson steered his car to the right and struck the rock hillside.  He stopped his car at the scene and was contacted by officers from the West Valley CHP Area."

CHP Public Information Officer Leland Tang tells TMZ ... "Gibson told officers in the field he did not know how the car drifted out of the lane and into the hillside."  Tang said his officers followed up by asking Gibson if he was on a cell phone and he said no.  Tang adds officers also asked Gibson if he had dozed off "but he did not give a firm 'yes' or 'no'."  Gibson just repeated several times, "I don't know how the car left the roadway."

The report goes on, "Mr. Gibson supplied all the pertinent information to the officers at the scene, gave a statement, and received a ride home from a friend."

Gibson was not hurt.

According to the report, "DUI is not suspected in the accident."

UPDATE:  As for the curious statement in the report ... "For unknown reasons, Mr. Gibson steered his car to the right and struck the rock hillside." Tang tells TMZ his department was in no way trying to insinuate Gibson did it intentionally. Tang says, "It was totally an unintentional act."  And Tang says no citation was issued and no charges will be filed.

@middleagedcrazy:

I've said that on several threads now, anon has been personally attacking everyone who doesnt agree with him/her.

what i HAVE noticed from EVERY thread i've seen is the mel supporters state their case and argue their point... the ox supporters state their case and when someone doesn't agree with it, they personally attack them and try and tear them apart.

This is why i now ignore any of anon's posting... that pissant is not worth my typing effort, and also why i think all the ox supporters are really just one ox supporter with multiple accounts... cuz it seems kind of odd that every single person out there who thinks ox is right, tries to get people to agree with them through insult.

Ya know, I wouldn't mind the mindless, juvenile name calling if they would just have a little more creativity.

The same old same old gets really boring, really fast.

"Mel's a racist azz" "Losers" "get a job/life"

Yadda yadda yadda Yaaawwwn.

Oh well, at least one can tell within the first three words which ones to just skip over.

Re the babysitter: I hope her family got some money from the tabloids for her final expenses. Her testimony is obviously moot, and I do hope that her family will at least get something out of this.

okay lets all agree that mel is crazy and a drunk and obviously wrecks a lot of cars---some on fire.
He gets celebrity treatment so therefor he abuses poor women who can hardly speak english and kills anyone who gets in his way-=-
hence a dead babysitter(the smoking gun) who could have taken mel down is now dead and missing
now he crashes his car and should be in jail but he walks because the police are afraid of him and his power

Posted at 10:23 AM on Aug 16, 2010 by you are wrong and I am right
---------------------------------------------------------------
OK - the pic you see of the car on fire is from a section of "celebrity car crashes" so that does not implicate Mel in this at all.

You also say Mel "wrecks a lot of cars" - Tell me please, HOW MANY you know he's wrecked.

Regarding the deceased Nanny - she died of cancer (as reported) so to incriminate MG implying that he kills people who get in his way is WRONG. And please share with me how you know the Nanny is missing. Perhaps her body is at the morgue or funeral home?

And YES he walked away from the crash but why should he be put in jail. Does everyone who WRECKS THEIR CAR go to jail? Not in America.

So, to help me see your side, can you explain.....

Wonder if he was going all 'Mad Mel' on someone on the phone while he was driving. Raging while driving can be really distracting, don't ya know.
