Actor Haley Joel Osment was hospitalised early on Thursday morning with non-life-threatening injuries after the car he was driving overturned in a Los Angeles suburb, according to authorities.
Osment, 18, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his role as a boy who could see dead people in The Sixth Sense, apparently lost control of his 1995 Saturn and collided with a brick pillar.
"The collision caused the vehicle to flip over onto its roof and come to rest a short distance away," said Lt. Greg Sisneros of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
When deputies pulled Osment from the wreckage, he was alert and able to speak with them, Sisneros said, adding that the actor looked "banged up and scraped up."
He had apparently not been wearing a seat belt, Sisneros said.
Osment's accident follows the hospitalization on Wednesday of actor Daniel Baldwin, who suffered back and neck injuries after running his silver Ford Thunderbird into two parked cars.
Baldwin faces charges of reckless driving and driving with a suspended license, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
