Osment Recovering From Car Crash

LATEST: THE SIXTH SENSE star HALEY JOEL OSMENT is recovering in a California hospital after suffering from a fracture to his right rib, right shoulder and lacerations to his body after a car crash. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said the actor lost control of his Saturn station wagon on a winding street at approximately 2am (local time) this morning (20JUL06) near La Canada Flintridge. He crashed into a brick mailbox, causing the car to roll onto its roof. The 18-year-old was the only passenger in the vehicle. Investigators say he was not wearing a seat belt. Osment's agent disputes those claims, saying he did have his seat belt on, but when the airbags in the car deployed, he undid it so that he could get out of the vehicle as he crawled in the back to get out. Witness on the scene described the actor as being "seriously banged up". Eyewitness MARK MCADAMS said the crash was so severe that, "I thought it was a fatality at first." The actor is expected to spend another night in hospital, but is expected to make a full recovery. Authorities are awaiting test results to determine if alcohol or drugs played any part in the accident.
