'Prison Break' Actor Involved In Fatal Crash, Previous Non-Fatal Fender-Bender

In case you missed your local news report on the fatal Saturday night car accident in Beverly Hills involving former Prison Break actor Lane Garrison, we pass along CBS's recounting of the sad incident:

(CBS) BEVERLY HILLS A 17-year-old boy was killed and a 15-year-old girl was critically injured when a sport utility vehicle containing actor Lane Garrison of television's "Prison Break" struck a tree in Beverly Hills, police said. The accident occurred about 11:50 p.m. Saturday in the 300 block of Beverly Drive, said Beverly Hills police Officer Jeff Gelfman.

The name of the fatally injured boy was withheld. He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Garrison, 26, was not seriously injured. Aside from the critically injured girl, another 15-year-old girl suffered lesser injuries.

It was unclear who was driving the northbound vehicle, which hit a tree on the east curb, he said.

TMZ now reports that sources in the Beverly Hills police department confirm that Garrison was the driver of the SUV. They've also helpfully reposted a video clip of a late October fender-bender involving the actor captured by their ever-present cameras stationed on the sidewalk in front of Hyde; while this footage has seemingly nothing to do with Saturday night's accident, we imagine that TMZ is spotlighting it again out of a sense of vague guilt that they didn't heed the earlier accident as some kind of warning sign and make a citizen's confiscation of Garrison's keys.
