LeAnn Rimes and Family Unhurt After Driver Crashes on Property
LeAnn Rimes was lucky to have been out of town on Monday morning (Oct. 3), when a suspected drunk driver crashed his car onto her property in Hidden Hills, Calif., toppling a stop sign and hitting a light pole and fence, E! Online reports.
The country star was in North Carolina at the time, but neither her husband, ‘Playboy Club’ actor Eddie Cibrian, nor his two sons were injured.
“To address the accident that happened in front of our home this morning, everyone is ok and safe,” the singer tweeted. “However, if drunk driving was involved it is terribly sad.
“My family could have been seriously injured and any situation where someone is drinking and driving should not be taken lightly,” she added. “Needless to say, it was a very unsettling call to receive this morning. Thank goodness the young driver and everyone at home are ok.”
In a later tweet, LeAnn showed forgiveness for the driver, a 20-year-old male with a suspended license whose toxicology reports are still pending.
“[I]t’s sad, he’s young and no matter what the reason I hope he gets the help he needs if he needs it and I’m glad everyone is ok,” the singer wrote.
LeAnn’s latest album, ‘Lady and Gentlemen’ was released last week.
