The comedian has reportedly just left the set of his movie “Arthur” in a new Lamborghini Superleggera worth $238,000 when he was struck by a large truck. The crash was so strong that Russel got trapped in the passenger seat and had to climb out of the driver’s side.

Although Brand had severe bruising and cuts all over his arms, he refused to go to the hospital. Apparently, he was hurt more by the fact that he’d only just taken a loan for the car. It was estimated that his brand new ride suffered $9,500 worth of damages.

Brand later on downplayed the accident on Twitter and claimed that the crash barely even “spilled his espresso”.

Good to know the comedian was unhurt by the accident and we’re pretty sure that Katy Perry will be ready to nurse him back to health in a nurse costume and all that!
