Daniel Baldwin Crashes Into 2 Parked Cars

LOS ANGELES (July 20, 2006) — Daniel Baldwin was hospitalized Wednesday after his speeding car crashed into two vehicles parked on a Los Angeles street, police said.

The actor complained of back and neck pain and was taken to UCLA Medical Center, said Officer Jason Lee, a police spokesman. Lee said Baldwin did not appear to be seriously hurt.

Authorities said a female passenger, whose name was not released, was not hurt.

Lee said Baldwin, 45, was driving with a suspended license. The actor was detained at the hospital while police investigated the crash, Lee said.

A hospital spokeswoman said she could not confirm that the actor had been treated there.

Lee said police saw Baldwin’s car traveling about 80 mph on the city’s west side shortly before 1 p.m. He said it weaved in and out of traffic and ran a red light before striking two parked vehicles.

The speed limit in the area is 35 mph, police said.

One of the vehicles, a Hummer, was pushed about 20 feet by the impact, Lee said.

Baldwin, whose siblings include actors Alec Baldwin and William Baldwin, has appeared in such films as “Car 54, Where Are You?” and “Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman.”
