'True Blood' Star FLIPS CAR At Celebrity Car Race

4/15/2011 9:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"True Blood" star Stephen Moyer had a frightening moment on the race track at the Long Beach Grand Prix earlier today -- when he flipped his car during a qualifying lap ... but was able to walk away.

We're told the car flipped once ... and landed on its wheels. Moyer didn't appear to be injured and got out of the car on his own.

Moyer even gave a thumbs up to the crowd.041511_stephan_moyer_still TMZ obtained footage showing Moyer emerging from his vehicle moments after the incident.




UPDATE:
A rep for the race tells us, "The actor emerged unscathed -- and the top celebrity qualifier based on individual lap time."

Rollovers can and do often dissipate the energy from a crash and as long as you have the proper protection, they can even be FUN! Hang on and enjoy the ride! Total rush!!!

(And trust me on this, I know very well what I'm talking about!)

How did they get his car to float in the air like that? Thought they said the car landed on it's wheels. Fake picture.

Some comments are just stupid or nasty, but most people realize this was a "celebrity race for charity", and therefore these are non-professional racers.
Kudos, Stephen, you did a great job, and you won your charity some money - good for you!

Wow, a couple of snarly and stupid comments, but most people are considerate and complimentary.
You went for it Stephen, and you got your charity check - good for you!

Just like a rally race except the one in the car is Stephen Moyer. Shows over without him its just the roof between the pavement and his head.

Didn't know he was in the Grand Prix!

Dealers now offer another level of protection for the consumer in the form of certified used vehicles. These are nearly new cars that meet specific qualifying standards, have been carefully inspected and serviced, and are backed by extra warranties. Consumers can also have potential purchases inspected and certified by independent firms, and they can even purchase additional, after-market warranties
