Brand in shock after car crash

RUSSELL Brand was involved in a car accident in a £150,000 ($A217,000) Lamborghini.

The actor had just left the set of his new movie 'Arthur' in New York on Friday when a heavy truck ploughed into the back of the on-loan car in which he was a passenger.

The "shell shocked" British funnyman suffered cuts and bruising in the crash.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The whole incident was pretty terrifying. Russell was very shaken. He refused to go to A&E despite severe bruising and cuts. He's gutted as he had just taken loan of the car."

The crash caused £6,000 worth of damage to the Lamborghini and witnesses said 35-year-old Russell was trapped in the passenger seat and had to climb out the driver's door.

Another source explained: "It was pretty terrifying. This massive truck came out of nowhere and ploughed straight into Russell's side of the car.

"The driver of the car ran around to the passenger door but it wouldn't open. Russell had to climb over and escape through the driver's door. He looked very shaken but he kept his sunglasses on.

Russell's mother Barbara has flown out to the US from the UK to visit him while his pop star fiancee Katy Perry is performing in Malaysia.
