Gibson ended up striking the rocky hillside on Malibu Canyon Road. The actor was driving a 2008 Maserati, which had to be towed from the scene. According to the CHP report, obtained by TMZ, "For unknown reasons, Mr. Gibson steered his car to the right and struck the rock hillside. He stopped his car at the scene and was contacted by officers from the West Valley CHP Area."
"Gibson told officers in the field he did not know how the car drifted out of the lane and into the hillside," Fox News quoted Leland Tang, CHP Public Information Officer, as saying. Gibson just repeated several times, "I don't know how the car left the roadway."
The report goes on, "Mr. Gibson supplied all the pertinent information to the officers at the scene, gave a statement, and received a ride home from a friend."
