Phoenix In Car Crash

Hollywood star JOAQUIN PHOENIX escaped unhurt from a serious car accident on Thursday (26JAN06), thanks to his seatbelt.

The WALK THE LINE heart-throb, 31, was driving along a canyon road above Sunset Strip in Los Angeles when his brakes failed.

The actor lost control of his car, which overturned and collided with another vehicle, police spokesman JASON LEE confirms.

Fortunately both drivers were unhurt and Phoenix was able to walk away from the scene after he was assisted out of the vehicle.

His publicist SUSAN PATRICOLA says, "His brakes went out and the car flipped over. But he's doing fine. He may be very sore in the morning, but right now he is doing OK."

Patricola adds the accident will not affect his planned attendance of the Screen Actor's Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday (29JAN06).

I knew it was Joaquin as soon as I saw the headline on AOL. It said Golden Globe Winner's car flips. Then I go to read some of the comments. People are saying terrible things about his scar on his lip, accusing him of substance abuse, calling him stupid and a liar. I don't understand why those people are being so mean. Probably just jealous. I am just thankful he's OK. This could have been another horrible tragedy for the Phoenix family. Joaquin is so young...we will see so much more wonderful works from him. Thank God he's OK!

Thank God that neither Joaquin nor anyone else was injured in this accident. Poor Joaquin though, he probably wouldn't have had as much trouble with stopping the car if he hadn't had that pesky frog living in his hair...lol!
