British comedian Russell Brand suffered cuts and bruises after a truck hit the car he was travelling in.
Brand, 35, was on his way back from the set of his new movie Arthur in New York Friday when a heavy truck ploughed into his Lamborghini, reports contactmusic.com. He had bought the $240,000 car on a loan.
"The whole incident was pretty terrifying. Russell was very shaken. He refused to go to A&E (Accident and Emergency) despite severe bruising and cuts. He's gutted as he had just taken a loan for the car," a source was quoted as saying.
Brand was trapped in the passenger seat and used the driver's door to come out.
"It was pretty terrifying. This massive truck came out of nowhere and ploughed straight into Russell's side of the car. The driver of the car ran around to the passenger door but it wouldn't open. Russell had to climb over and escape through the driver's door. He looked very shaken but he kept his sunglasses on," added another source.
Brand's mother has flown out to the US from Britain to visit him while his pop star fiancee Katy Perry is performing in Malaysia.
