This is no way to get an exclusive, guys! Ryan Reynolds was the victim of a hit-and-run in his native Canada when a paparazzo’s car struck him in a parking garage and then totally fled the scene — most likely because the only way they know how to drive is in chase mode. “While walking, Ryan was struck by a paparazzi driving a car through an underground parking garage,” the actor’s rep says in a statement. “The man fled the scene. Ryan is OK.” The incident happened in the residential parking lot of the Shangri-La hotel in Vancouver, Reynolds’ hometown. CBC News reports suggest the actor was injured, but police did not release further details.
Reynolds, at least, has a sense of humor about the whole thing:
Hey @VancityReynolds, the CBC wants to know how you are doing after being hit by a car. Can you call (604) 662-6990.
