Sandra Bullock Hit By Drunk Driver

April 19, 2008

Sandra Bullock and her husband Jesse James were hit by a drunk driver with a blood alcohol level of .20, more than twice the legal limit.

Bullock and James were in the back of a SUV when Lucille Gatchell crossed the center line in her station wagon and hit them. Both vehicles were traveling around 20 mph and were totaled, but no one was hurt. Law enforcement officials say Bullock was “gracious and concerned about whether Gatchell was OK.” Gatchell on the other hand was, well, drunk.

“After I arrested her I had her in the cruiser. I said, ‘Do you realize who you hit?’ She asked, ‘Who?’ I said, ‘Sandra Bullock’,�? Mackey said. “She was almost giggling and laughing. She said, ‘My first drunk driving and I hit Sandra Bullock’.�?

The accident occurred in Massachusetts where Sandra is on location filming the romantic comedy “The Proposal.” She is starring opposite Ryan Reynolds in the film about a woman who forces her assistant to marry her to avoid deportation to Canada. The movie isn’t out until September, but you can see more of Sandra Bullock below. She looks awesome at 43! There’s also a photo of the woman who hit her.
