At around 10:20 PM PST last night, Brigitte Nielsen was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles after a car accident involving three different cars; one of them suspected to be heavily under the influence of alcohol. The drunk driver was assumed to be the cause of the crash.
The LAPD says that Nielsen was a passenger in a 2006 Porsche Cayenne. The Porsche was hit by a Toyota Matrix — hard enough to slam the vehicle into the car in front of her. Cops arrived at the scene quickly following the paramedics. The drunk driving woman was immediately arrested for DUI when she was asked to take a field sobriety test and blew WAY over the legal limit on the breathalyzer.
Brigitte was immediately rushed to the nearest hospital for doctors to take x-rays and make sure her neck and back were fine. She suffered from whiplash in her back and neck but, nothing was broken.
One of Brigitte’s representatives says, “She is back home. She’s sore and resting.”
Incidents like these let us know how serious drunk driving really is and that we need to watch out for ourselves as well as other people. Be safe this holiday season, guys.
