A few days after John Clark Gable was reportedly charged for hitting six parked cars, here is another incident of a driver hitting a parked car.
Recent reports have it that the guitar legend Carlos Santana drove his car into a vehicle parked near an upscale community in Las Vegas last Friday night.
According to reports, Santana was alone when the incident occurred as he was on his way home. It was not clear whether a sobriety field test was done to the rock guitarist. Nevertheless, police recently confirmed that he was not driving under the influence at the time of the accident.
Fortunately, no one was injured from the accident. So far, details regarding the incident available are only limited. Even the make and the extent of damage of the parked car are still unknown. One thing is for sure, the incident occurred within the area of Summerlin, a well-to-do community in west Las Vegas.
The police further claimed that it was only a minor incident. In fact, it was not even “log worthy”, the police added, referring to the police department’s official record of events.
Based on Santana’s concert schedule, he did not have a concert on Friday.
Santana became well known during the 1960s and early 1970s with his band which performs a blend of rock and Latin American music until present. In 2003, he was listed at number 20 of Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 100 Greatest Guitarist of All Time. Also, he has won 10 Grammy Awards and 3 Latin Grammy Awards.
Meanwhile, a Los Angeles personal injury attorney claimed that it is not the first time that a celebrity or a big personality ironically engaged in such incident of hitting parked cars. Aside from Gable, the lawyer herein once featured Ben Affleck in his blog when the latter accidentally struck a parked vehicle in Los Angeles, California. The driver of the other vehicle was not around. Therefore, without having any intention of fleeing away, the actor decided to just leave an apology note with his contact number on it attached at the vehicle’s windshield.
