Known for his notable roles in Aquaman, Dune, and Game of Thrones, actor Jason Momoa suffered a head-on collision in a motorcycle accident over the weekend, as the actor’s car crashed with a motorcycle. As he was driving on the Los Angeles road, around the highway area, a motorcycle that happened to have gone over the center line, jumping into the opposite lane, collided with the actor’s car, which happened to be a 1970 Oldsmobile.
According to reports, the rider fell out of the motorcycle after colliding with the 42-year-old actor’s car on the left side, from the front. This incident sparked the question of proper road safety, as is being discussed by the netizens.
Before Anyone Gets Alarmed, Nobody Got Injured
Thankfully, the collision wasn’t too bad — in fact, both the actor and the motorcyclist are safe, with no major injuries. According to sources of TMZ, what happened was that, on the weekend, the actor was spotted driving on Old Topanga Canyon Road, situated in Calabasas. Apparently, as he was driving, a 21-year-old motorcyclist drove across the center line, and moved over into the other lane, specifically at a curve.
Jason Momoa Helped The Motorcyclist
According to reports from the California Highway Patrol, the actor was quick to assist the biker. When the biker came into contact with the actor’s Oldsmobile, it hit the windshield of the car. While the biker managed to successfully get a hold of himself and avoided a potentially dangerous, lethal crash, the Dune actor immediately rushed out of his automobile for further assistance. A TMZ video captured the aftermath of the incident, which revealed other bikers at the point of occurrence, along with a couple of emergency staff who arrived for aid.
California Highway Patrol also commented that the actor had alerted one of the passing bikers so that he could dial 911 for help. The Aquaman actor was left untouched, as he safely exited the scene.
The motorcyclist suffered minimal injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. While this has ignited a debate and discussion over proper road safety practices, no official statements from Momoa’s representatives have been issued, and neither have they filed for any official charges in regard to the collision.
As for the actor’s upcoming projects, we will see his return in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom reportedly set for a 2023 release.
