Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green could have been seriously injured this week, but don’t worry – they’re actually okay. They were out driving in Los Angeles on Friday when a drunk driver switched lanes and swiped their Range Rover. Thankfully they weren’t hurt at all, but they could have been – and the possibility has really left them shaken up.
“It could have ended horribly. We were talking about it today, on the way to run errands. I was saying, ‘We’re really lucky,” Green, 41, told Us at the 6th Annual Night of Generosity Gala in Beverly Hills on Friday, Dec. 5. “He was going 50 miles an hour, and we were going 25 down the street, and we hit head?on. The inertia of that is is life changing. That’s life changing for us.”
The couple’s two sons Noah, 2, and Bodhi, 9 months, were luckily not in the car at the time. Still, Green and 28-year-old Fox (who was in the passenger seat) were shaken up by the incident. “[The driver] hit the air bag. I got out of the car. I shook hands with the man,” Green explained. “The cars did their jobs.”
“That being said, he came around the corner very fast,” the actor continued. “Let alone, I’ve heard, he had a few drinks.” As previously reported, Green called the cops at the scene and the drunk driver was then taken into custody.
Huh. Well, it’s a good job nobody was hurt. I still will never, ever understand why people get behind the wheel when under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It really boggles my mind. If you had the money to go out buying alcohol, you’ll have the money to call a damn taxi home so that you don’t take someone’s life – or possibly your own.
