CINEMA: Arnold Schwarzenegger involved in a serious car accident on Friday.

The 74-year-old for­mer coach­builder was in a Yukon SUV when he crashed a red Prius around 5 p.m. PT in Brent­wood, Calif., TMZ first reported.

Arnold’s SUV end­ed up on top of the Prius and then rolled into a Porsche Cayenne, accord­ing to reports.

Los Ange­les police say a mul­ti-vehi­cle acci­dent occurred Fri­day after­noon in Brent­wood and con­firmed one per­son was slight­ly injured, accord­ing to KABC-TV.

Four cars were involved in the crash, which hap­pened on Sun­set Boule­vard and Allen­ford Avenue around 4:15 p.m., police said.

The female dri­ver of the Prius was injured and “bleed­ing pro­fuse­ly from her head,” TMZ reported.

How­ev­er, ABC7 learned that the injured per­son was tak­en to hos­pi­tal with minor injuries.

The dri­ver of the Prius was attempt­ing to make a U‑turn on Sun­set Boule­vard when the col­li­sion occurred, accord­ing to the report.

An eye­wit­ness said the acci­dent, which alleged­ly hap­pened about a mile from Arnold’s house, “looked like a stunt in a movie”.

Arnold, who was Cal­i­for­ni­a’s 38th gov­er­nor from 2003 to 2011, was seen in pho­tos obtained by TMZ speak­ing to those at the scene.

TMZ learned that Arnold was doing well after the acci­dent and was wor­ried about the injured driver.

A source told the out­let that Arnold was try­ing to per­son­al­ly check on the injured woman.

Amer­i­can actor and fit­ness per­son­al­i­ty Jake Ste­in­feld appeared to be at the scene at the time of the crash.

A pho­to shared by TMZ showed Ste­in­feld stand­ing next to Arnold near the wrecked cars, the two of whom are said to be “close friends.”

It is not yet known whether Arnold or some­one else was dri­ving the SUV.

Police said the crash does not appear to involve any form of impaired dri­ving and no arrests have been made, accord­ing to KABC.
The inci­dent comes more than a decade after Arnold was sent to hos­pi­tal to receive 15 stitch­es to his lip after a motor­cy­cle accident.

In 2006, the Ter­mi­na­tor was rid­ing his Harley-David­son when he was involved in a minor acci­dent, SFGATE reported.

Arnold was rid­ing his motor­cy­cle with his 12-year-old child in a side­car, accord­ing to LAPD offi­cer Jason Lee.

Lee said Arnold was unable to stop his motor­cy­cle in time when a vehi­cle backed into a driveway.

Arnold and his son suf­fered only cuts and bruis­es and the dri­ver of the oth­er vehi­cle was unin­jured, Lee said.

Lee called the crash a “minor traf­fic col­li­sion” and a “rel­a­tive­ly low speed collision.”
