Carlos Santana Walks Away Unharmed From Las Vegas Crash

Carlos Santana escaped injury after he drove into an unoccupied parked car near an upscale Las Vegas area, police said.

The Grammy-winning guitarist was headed home alone when the crash occurred Friday night in Summerlin.

Police Lt. Ken Romane told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that it’s uncertain whether a sobriety field test was conducted, but that Santana was not driving under the influence.

Romane did not know the make of Santana's vehicle or the extent of damage to it and the parked car. Romane said the accident was "minor."

According to his concert schedule, the 66-year-old Santana performed on Thursday and Saturday nights but not on Friday night.

Santana has won 15 Grammys and is best known for the album "Supernatural," which has sold more than 25 million copies.
