When Lea Michele was driving to her Glee audition she likes to tell the story of how she was in a car accident and had to read for the Rachel Berry role with glass in her hair and cuts on her body. Unfortunately it looks like history has repeated itself with Michele ending up in yet another L.A. car accident, this time involving several drunk girls.
Returning home from the Glee set, Lea was involved in a fender bender. According to Us Weekly, “Lea was hit and notified the police,” and, “She was not injured and is fine.”
Apparently the girls, who were too drunk to function, got out of the car and made fools of themselves, according to a witness:
“A couple of drunk girls hit her, got out of the car, giggled that she was famous, said something like ‘are you drunk, too?’ Then they drove off.”
Michele doesn’t seem too shaken up about her L.A. accidents, telling New York Magazine:
“I hear you have to crash your car once in California before you can be initiated as a true L.A. resident,”
“So for me, I don’t consider it a problem. I consider it, ‘Okay, good! Got that out of the way. Now I live here.’” “For my second audition, I got into a massive car wreck, left my crashed car in the street and ran into the audition with cuts and glass in my hair. And then on the final audition, I had the worst neck ache from the car accident.”
Regardless of her fearlessness, she’s one expensive commodity to lose, perhaps the studio or Glee creator Ryan Murphy himself should invest in a caravan to drive the poor girl home each night.
