Shaun White - Shaun White Fools Fans With Car Crash Photo

Olympic snowboarder-turned-rocker Shaun White tricked fans into thinking he and his bandmates had been involved in a traffic accident on Monday (10Mar14) after sharing a photo of a car in a ditch online.

The sportsman and his group Bad Things are in Austin, Texas with for the South by Southwest (Sxsw) festival and he poked fun at drummer Lena Zawaideh's driving skills in the Instagram.com post by suggesting she had driven them off the road.

The picture featured the rockers checking out the damage to the car, and in the accompanying caption, White wrote, "Really Lena......"

The message prompted bosses at car giant Chevrolet, an Sxsw sponsor, to reach out to White on Twitter and offer to give them a ride, but a representative for the star has since assured fans the post was a joke - they found the vehicle outside a venue they had been performing at, reports the New York Post.

Guitarist White formed the band with childhood pals Zawaideh and Anthony Sanudo in 2012 and recruited frontman Davis LeDuke and bassist Jared Palomar last year (13).
