Supermodel Petra Nemkova insists boyfriend James Blunt had no idea he'd driven over an autograph hunter's foot as he left a Hollywood party last weekend (23FEB07).
The YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL singer is currently being investigated by Los Angeles police after leaving the scene of the incident outside agent BRYAN LOURD's pre-Oscars party.
But Nemkova, who was Blunt's passenger when the incident took place, claims her boyfriend sped off because he didn't realise he'd left a fan injured by the roadside.
The Czech model says, "We found out the day after. We didn't know. We found out from the newspaper.... It's just really sad."
The incident has now been classified as a hit and run.
