“Aquaman” star Jason Momoa was driving his Oldsmobile muscle car in Calabasas, California when a motorcyclist jumped lanes and smashed into him head-on. The motorcyclist allegedly had crossed the centre line on a bend and struck him. Read on to learn more about the incident.
No Serious Injuries On Both Sides…
Jason Momoa, 42, who played Khal Drogo in Game Of Thrones, was reportedly involved in a “head-on crash” with a motorcycle on Sunday (July 25). The Dune star was driving on Old Topanga Canyon Road near Calabasas, California when a motorcyclist “travelling in the opposite direction made contact with him coming around a curve.”
The police report from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) gives a detailed account of the crash wherein it came out that a motorcyclist jumped lanes and smashed into the 42-year-old star head-on. The CHP document reads as under:
“On July 24, 2022, at approximately 1101 hours, the California Highway Patrol, West Valley Area was dispatched to a report of a traffic collision involving a vehicle and a motorcycle.” Jason was driving eastbound on Old Topanga Canyon Road in a 1970 Oldsmobile when a motorcycle – driven by Vitaliy Avagimyan of Tarzana, California — “crossed over the double yellow lines into the eastbound lanes, directly into the path of Jason Momoa’s vehicle.
The report adds, “As a result of this collision, Mr. Avagimyan was ejected from his motorcycle. After the collision, Mr. Momoa exited his vehicle to assist Mr. Avagimyan and was able to flag down a passing motorist to call 9-1-1. Mr. Avagimyan was transported by ambulance to Northridge hospital for medical treatment of minor, non-life threatening injuries. Mr. Momoa was uninjured and remained on scene throughout the investigation.”
Luckily, no one survived any serious injuries. The rider of the motorcycle was identified as Vitaliy Avagimyan and was taken to a Northridge hospital for treatment of minor injuries. However, Jason stayed at the scene throughout the investigation.
Jason’s Unscripted Docuseries
The accident happened just a day after Momoa shared a peek at his Harley Davidson collaboration and On The Roam, an unscripted docuseries for Warner Bros. Discovery. Several media outlets describe that the series will document the star, “as he travels across the United States to meet extraordinary people who are blazing their respective paths — including motorcycle fabricators, craftsmen, musicians and athletes — and making a difference in their industry.”
Jason shared this news on Instagram with a caption: “So excited to share my second @harleydavidson collection with you all . inspired by my love for vintage bikes and my home,” the Hawaii-born actor wrote in a post published on Instagram Saturday. “We shot everything while racing in the dirt with my friends filming our new show On The Roam can’t wait for you to see.” Well, the next day, a biker boy crashed into him. But sigh! Everyone is safe and sound.
