Supporters of Michael B. Jordan, the 35-year-old actor renowned for his performances in “Black Panther” and “Creed” (distinguished from the basketball icon Michael Jordan), find themselves taken aback following the release of video footage capturing his recent car accident on Sunset Boulevard. The incident occurred in early December, as Jordan was navigating the well-known Hollywood thoroughfare close to midnight, resulting in a collision after sideswiping another vehicle.
Footage from a dashcam vividly portrays the tense moment when Michael B. Jordan’s 812 Superfast lost control at high speeds, fishtailing before colliding broadside with a parked SUV near the intersection at Beachwood.
The video, recorded by a nearby driver, initiates with the luxury car gracefully navigating the street alongside an unidentified Ferrari. In what seems like a brief race between the two vehicles, the 812 Superfast then fishtails, culminating in a forceful impact with a parked Kia Niro.
As reported by TMZ, the LAPD swiftly responded to the incident, arriving at the scene shortly before 11:35 p.m. During their response, officers confirmed Michael B. Jordan’s presence at the location but did not explicitly state whether he was behind the wheel at the time of the accident. Notably, law enforcement refrained from conducting a field sobriety test, citing no apparent suspicion of alcohol or drug influence on Jordan’s part.
Authorities were able to verify that Michael B. Jordan’s blue 812 Superfast did indeed make contact with the parked Kia Niro SUV. The collision resulted in significant damage to both luxury vehicles. Fortunately, despite the substantial impact, no major injuries were reported for the A-list actor.
According to a source cited by the Hollywood Reporter, Michael B. Jordan, slated to receive an award at the Academy Museum Gala the following evening, made a cautious decision not to attend. Choosing prudence in light of the recent car accident, his sister Jamila Jordan stepped in to accept the honor on his behalf.
As of now, the LAPD has not issued a public statement regarding the crash. Several aspects remain shrouded in uncertainty, including the ownership of the other Ferrari featured in the footage and the unconfirmed nature of a race between the two luxury vehicles on Sunset Blvd.
The incident’s occurrence on one of Los Angeles’ busiest roads underscores the significance of adhering to safe driving practices and the inherent dangers associated with reckless driving behavior. While Michael B. Jordan’s fans express relief over his absence of major injuries, there is palpable frustration among many due to the troubling nature of the captured footage.
