NCIS: Los Angeles’ Linda Hunt Recovering After ‘Minor Traffic Accident’

Linda Hunt is on the mend after a car crash on Monday left her hospitalized.

The 73-year-old Oscar winner and NCIS: Los Angeles star told CBS2 Los Angeles on Tuesday that she didn’t suffer any serious injuries in the wreck and was getting back on her feet.

“Yesterday I was involved in a minor traffic accident and taken to the hospital,” Hunt said in a statement to the outlet. “I’m pleased to report I’m recovering well and have no serious injuries. Thank you for all the well wishes! I’m looking forward to starting production on NCIS: Los Angeles later this summer.”

A rep for Hunt did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

TMZ was first to report Hunt’s crash. According to the outlet, she was making a left turn when the black BMW SUV she was driving collided with two cars.

“An eyewitness tells us Hunt struck a sedan and then collided with a Honda SUV,” TMZ reported. “Hunt was visibly shaken, and witnesses escorted her to a lawn chair on the sidewalk. We’re told paramedics evaluated Linda on the chair and then determined she needed to be taken to the hospital.”

Pictures from the scene captured paramedics speaking with Hunt before her hospital visit. The other drivers suffered minor injuries from the crash, TMZ reported.

Hunt won a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award in 1983 for her performance in The Year of Living Dangerously. She made history as the first star to win an Oscar for playing a role of the opposite sex.

The New Jersey native has since gone on to appear in more than 200 NCIS: Los Angeles episodes, as well as tackle roles in The Practice, Carnivàle, and Disney’s Pocahontas (in which she voiced the character of Grandmother Willow).

Claudia Schiffer Stops Traffic on Via Montenapoleone

CLAUDIA IN MILAN: A day after walking the runway for Versace, Claudia Schiffer presented a Rizzoli book on her 30 years in fashion at the designer brand’s flagship on Via Montenapoleone — literally stopping traffic on the tony shopping street. She admitted the show had been an emotional moment. “We were all remembering Gianni, whom we worked very closely with,” Schiffer said. Asked if she had felt nervous, she said, despite the fact that her last fashion show was 15 years ago, “strangely it felt very much at home, very natural.”
Schiffer said Donatella Versace had requested secrecy. “It was all top secret, none of us could tell anyone [about the finale with the other supermodels Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen and Carla Bruni], and each one stayed in a different hotel.”
Schiffer signed and dedicated a copy of her book in the store to Donatella Versace, “the most iconic person,” she wrote. “She is [the one that is ] iconic, and very generous,” the designer said of Schiffer. “The most beautiful thing is that every model [the younger generation] backstage was crying and clapping [at the end of the show],” she added.
Schiffer will travel to Paris next week to present the

Photos Shine A Spotlight On Just How Beautiful Traffic Lights Can Be

These photographs are simply traffic-stopping.

Lucas Zimmermann’s long exposures of a set of traffic lights near Weimar in central Germany are going viral, for all the right reasons.

The 23-year-old Bauhaus University student actually snapped the images in 2013, but they gained international exposure this week after Reddit user dittidot posted one of the pictures online.

Zimmermann, who is studying visual communications with a focus on photography, said he came up with the concept in a “purely intuitive” way.

“I was lucky to be at the right place at the right time,” he told The Huffington Post this week.

Wedded Couple Stuck In Traffic Take First Dance On Highway

The road to love isn’t always smooth, as Jeff and Rebecca Payne found out this week.

The couple were married in Dayton, Ohio, Saturday night, only to get stuck in a huge traffic jam on the way to their reception.

The bride and groom ― and everyone else ― were stalled for an hour before another motorist spotted the bride’s wedding dress and suggested they do their first dance right there on U.S. Route 35, according to local station WLWT.

“It was actually some strangers from Kansas,” the couple’s videographer, Levi Curby, told CNN. “They noticed the wedding dress and asked what (the newlyweds) would be doing if they weren’t stuck in traffic.”

The motorists suggested the couple take that first dance then and there.

Although “Life Is A Highway” may have been apropos, the couple instead danced to Alison Krauss’ “When You Say Nothing At All,” which one of the bystanders found on Spotify.

Others watched from their vehicles while Curby filmed the whole thing, according to “Inside Edition.”

“I think there were some tears at first, but no meltdowns,” Curby told “Inside Edition.” “They were two sports. They handled the whole thing so well. They did great. The dance turned it into a party.”

The couple were finally rescued from their gridlocked reception when a friend of the groom’s father pulled up in the opposite lane, so the Paynes could hop over a guardrail, get into the car and start the rest of their life.

Here’s a video of the rescue:


The Paynes are now reportedly vacationing in an undisclosed location. Hopefully, it has little or no traffic.

Joe Plumeri Tells New York Law School Grads: ‘Go Play In Traffic’

Businessman Joe Plumeri, who currently serves as vice chairman of the First Data Board of Directors, gave the commencement address at New York Law School on Tuesday. He dropped out of New York Law School in the 1960s to pursue a job on Wall Street but was awarded an honorary degree this week.

In his energetic speech, Plumeri said graduates must have commitment, purpose and vision in order to have success. He encouraged graduates to commit fully to whatever they wanted to do, using the analogy that Vikings burned their ships when they landed at a place they wanted to conquer. But without purpose, Plumeri said, they won’t succeed.

“The purpose has got to be genuine concern for what you do and the people you do it for,” he said.

Plumeri told the graduates to “go play in traffic” to find their vision.

“Now you’re saying, ‘What’s wrong with the guy? He wants me to go get hit by a car!'” Plumeri said. “That’s not what I want you to do. What I want you to do is engage.”

He further explained that “playing in traffic” is all about going out there and exploring your vision, making blunders and taking risks.

“Go out, play in traffic,” he said. “Something’s gonna happen eventually.”

Police: Bobbi Kristina Brown Was In Traffic Wreck

ATLANTA (AP) — Whitney Houston’s daughter was involved in a traffic accident that injured two people days before she was found face-down in a bathtub, according to a police report obtained by The Associated Press.

Bobbi Kristina Brown lost control of her Jeep Liberty when a tire blew out on Jan. 27, crossing into oncoming traffic and colliding with another vehicle. Police in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell described “extensive damage” to both vehicles. Brown’s passenger and the other car’s driver were hospitalized. Brown blamed tire failure, and officers found a nail in the Jeep’s blown-out right rear tire, the incident report says.

Brown’s family said she’s been “fighting for her life” since she was found in her bathtub four days later, face-down and unresponsive. A police investigation is ongoing and few details on her condition have been released.

It wasn’t the first time police have been called to the townhouse in adjacent Alpharetta, Georgia, where Brown has lived with her partner, Nick Gordon. Brown frequently referred to Gordon as her husband, but a lawyer for her father, singer Bobby Brown, said they never married.

The Associated Press requested records from the Roswell Police Department, the agency that responded to the Jan. 31 call, for any previous contact with Brown or Gordon.

On Jan. 23, a security guard at their gated community called 911 reporting a fight at Brown’s address. The guard said a neighbor reported people “hitting each other and swinging” outside the townhome. The guard did not describe the people involved, and no one was there when officers arrived.

Police were called to the home on July 8, 2013, and Gordon told officers Brown was unresponsive after falling on the floor. Gordon described it as a seizure, but Brown told police she had no history of medical conditions and had never had a seizure. The incident report says Brown was disoriented and was taken to a hospital.

Last month’s crash also wasn’t Brown’s first car wreck. Police in Alpharetta cited her in November 2012 for failing to maintain her lane after the black Chevrolet Camaro she was driving landed in a ditch. No injuries were reported in that crash.

Gordon has also been cited for driving infractions. On Dec. 30, he was driving Brown’s Lexus and she was a passenger when police said Gordon rear-ended the car in front of him at a red light. Roswell police arrested him then on an unspecified Fulton County warrant.

Last August, Roswell police found Gordon with thick speech and droopy eyes at the scene of an overturned BMW, an incident report says. He was cited for failure to maintain his lane, driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a suspended license.

Gordon was also cited in April 2011 on a charge of pointing a pistol at another person during a fight. Brown was cited for being a minor in possession of alcohol during that same incident.

Two Deer Stop Rush Hour Traffic On The Golden Gate Bridge

It was rush hour on Friday in San Francisco, and traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge came to a grinding halt — all thanks to two rather unexpected guests.

According to NBC News, two deer wandered onto the Golden Gate Bridge at around 5.30 p.m. and promptly stopped up the flow of traffic on three northbound lanes. The deer appear to have entered from the southern end of the bridge, the news outlet said, and were running toward Marin County.

The duo reportedly got off the bridge safely and commuters were soon able to continue their journeys.

“You just don’t see this everyday,” wrote one Instagrammer who snapped a photo of the two deer sauntering across the bridge. “#deergate2014”
