Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds has escaped unhurt after being hit by a speeding car in Vancouver, Canada.
The 38-year-old Green Lantern actor was hit by a car when he was leaving the parking lot at the Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver, reported Ace Showbiz.
"It was a hit and run in the parking lot apparently, but there were no injuries," said Vancouver police constable Brian Montague.
Police are investigating the incident and will ask Reynolds whether he wants to proceed with any charges since he was not injured.
According to Montague, police have an "idea" of who was driving. The driver of the car that hit the actor was allegedly a paparazzo, but the police did not state whether the driver had been identified or located.
In an email, Reynolds' publicist Leslie Sloane shared details of the incident, "While walking, Ryan was struck by a paparazzi driving a car through an underground parking garage. The man fled the scene. Ryan is okay."
The hotel also released a statement confirming that there was an incident in the building's residential parking lot, but it did not mention the exact name of the victim. "We have extended our full assistance to the authorities who are handling the matter," the statement read.
Reynolds who hails from Vancouver, was in town to film Deadpool. His wife, Blake Lively, was in Los Angeles over the weekend to do publicity for her latest film, The Age of Adaline.
