Video: TOTALED! Lakers Jordan Hill's Bentley Convertible Crashes Into Condos!

LINK TO VIDEO

A man was arrested on suspicion of driving while
under the influence of alcohol or drugs this morning after he crashed a Bentley
convertible registered to Los Angeles Lakers forward Jordan Hill into a
condominium complex in Marina del Rey, a California Highway Patrol officer
said.
Hill was not driving the luxury car at the time of the crash, which was
reported just before 2 a.m. at 13900 Marquesas Way, off Via Marina, according
to California Highway Patrol Officer Monica Posada.
The arrested man was identified as Michael Lacey, 26, Posada said. His
city of residence was not immediately available.
Both Lacey and a female passenger in the Bentley suffered minor injuries
but were not taken to a hospital, Posada said.
The Bentley ended up in a patio area with its air bags deployed, a
photographer at the scene said.
Blood was visible on the vehicle's passenger side air bag, he said.
Hill lives in the building that was struck, a CHP officer told the
photographer.
Officers followed a trail of blood from the car to an elevator and from
the elevator to Hill's residence and questioned Hill about the crash, but he
denied being at the wheel, the officer said.
The car ruptured a gas line that was shut down by firefighters, a county
fire captain told the photographer.
A utility crew was summoned to deal with the gas line, county fire
department dispatcher Michael Pittman said. It was unclear whether gas service
was interrupted to residents or businesses in the area.
The crash is under investigation by the CHP, but it appeared to have
been caused by Lacey's alleged intoxication combined with excess speed that
caused him to mishandle a curve and jump a curb before striking the building,
Posada said. LOUDLABS NEWS

Jesus, reading the story, I was getting the impression he dumped it into a patio area, f'd up the front of the car, and that was it. He straight slammed through the building, and landing IN the patio area.

Yup unfortunate news, happened a week or so ago a month after we customized the car for him. We are glad everyone was ok, as the damage was substantial.
