While many celebs are dealing with pending DUI convictions, Sandra Bullock and her motorcycle maven husband Jesse James were caught on the other side of a drunk-driving induced collision Friday.
The couple was hit by a 64-year-old drunk driver in Gloucester, Massachusetts where Bullock is currently filming a movie. Lucille Gatchell struck the couple’s SUV (the stars were not driving) at around 9:50 p.m.
“Sandra Bullock and Jesse James were in a car accident last night,” the actress’ rep, Cheryl Maisel, told E! News, E! Online reports. “They are fine.”
Bullock, James and Gatchell may not have been injured in the collision but the 2008 Chevy SUV the couple was riding in maintained substantial damage in the head-on smash.
Gloucester police arrived on the scene to find Bullock and James visibly shaken by the incident.
“They were sort of hugging each other on the sidewalk,” Officer Kevin Mackey reportedly said. “Ms. Bullock was consoling him.”
Mackey also said the Miss Congeniality star seemed genuinely concerned and repeatedly asked officers if the other driver had been injured.
The couple left the scene with Bullock’s security about 20 minutes after the incident.
As for Gatchell, whose blood-alcohol turned out to be more than two and a half times the legal limit, police say she showed little remorse and at first, didn’t know who was involved in the accident.
“After I arrested her I had her in the cruiser,” Mackey told the Boston Herald newspaper. “I said, ‘Do you realize who you hit?’ She asked, ‘Who?’ I said, ‘Sandra Bullock.”
“She was almost giggling and laughing. She said, ‘My first drunk driving and I hit Sandra Bullock.’”
