LOS ANGELES – Ellen DeGeneres walked away from a three-vehicle collision caused by a suspected drunken driver, police said. "She had a little neck and back pain, but it doesn't look like it was anything serious," said Sgt. Ken Buscarino of the Los Angeles police said after Friday's accident.
The collision occurred just before 4 p.m. on Sunset Boulevard, Buscarino said. The talk-show host stopped her 2006 Porsche Carrera at a light, followed by a 2002 Buick Le Sabre with two men in their 20s.
A 2002 Porsche Carrera driven by a 52-year-old woman slammed into the back of the Buick and caused a chain reaction, police said.
The woman was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and had minor cuts on her leg, police said. The two men in the Buick suffered scratches.
DeGeneres' passenger, a woman in her mid-30s, complained of minor back pain. DeGeneres' car sustained moderate damage.
No one required medical attention at the scene, Buscarino said.
Messages left for DeGeneres' representatives early Saturday were not returned.
