Ouch! Bad things are meant to come in threes right? So far Mel is up to about six by my count.
As if his summer couldn’t get any worse, the loud mouth actor crashed his 2008 Maserati Quattroporte on Sunday evening while driving along the particularly rocky hillside of Malibu Canyon Road. Luckily he was not hurt but the car had to be towed from the scene.
The California Highway Patrol said that they did not suspect Mel of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. However, according to some sources, Mel was asked if he was talking on the phone while driving.
Mel’s Masserati, with a value of $125,000 is a large, fast four-door and not the usual stereotypical loud, flashy sports car you might expect. The Wall Street Journal said that the front fender and front wheel had been damaged. They estimated that to repair damages such as these to a car of this caliber could cost Mel the equivalent of a brand new Ford Fiesta or Kia Soul.
