'Revenge of the Nerd' star Robert Carradine cited with careless driving in car crash

Robert Carradine has been cited with careless driving in a crash that injured the "Revenge of the Nerds" actor and his wife in Colorado.

The wreck happened March 5 near Dolores, in the state's southwestern corner.

The Colorado State Patrol says the 60-year-old actor crossed into the oncoming lane on Colorado Highway 145, crashing into a tractor-trailer.

Carradine and his wife, Edith, were both hurt, but the state patrol says their injuries weren't life-threatening. The truck driver wasn't injured.

The Durango Herald reports that on Thursday, Carradine no longer was at the hospital where the couple was taken. It's unclear how long they were there.

Sgt. James Saunders tells the newspaper that neither alcohol nor speeding was a factor in the crash. Carradine and his wife were wearing seatbelts.
