The actor was driving his 2011 Mercedes Benz when it hit a Department of Transportation vehicle in a work zone on a Southern California freeway, according to a Fox News report on Monday. Fortunately, no one was injured.

There was a 911 call stating that his Mercedes was traveling slowly while weaving from lane to lane just before 2 a.m. on Monday.
