Rocky IV Actress – Brigitte Nielsen, Victim of Suspected Drunk Driver

The Rocky IV actress and Sylvester Stallone’s former wife, Brigitte Nielsen sustained minor personal injuries after being involved in a multiple car accident in Los Angeles which is allegedly caused by a drunk driver.

According to Nielsen’s spokesperson, the accident happened in Hollywood Hills. While she was riding on a 2006 Porsche Cayenne, a Toyota Matrix allegedly slammed at the back of the Porsche causing it to bump on the car in front.

Nielsen’s spokesperson further stated that the crash impact caused her vehicle’s airbag to deploy and as a result, she was unable to create even a single move. Therefore, she was immediately transported to the nearby hospital where she was given proper medical treatment for the minor personal injuries she sustained. She was released from the hospital not long after. However, she was advised by the doctor to take a home rest for the big bump on her forehead.

It was confirmed by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) spokesperson that the driver of the Toyota Matrix was drunk driving with an 11–year old boy in the car.

Driving under the influence (DUI) is one of the most common criminal charges in Los Angeles and its penalties could be serious which ranges from monetary fine to imprisonment. Obviously, the Toyota Matrix driver could now be held liable for the personal injury charges that Nielsen may file against him after the LAPD confirmed that the driver was drunk when the accident occurred.

Nielsen, 48, was born in Denmark. She was a model turned actress and became famous in her acting career in 1985 for the films “Red Sonja” and “Rocky IV”. On the same year, she married her Rocky IV co-star Sylvester Stallone but few years after, they got divorced. Ever since, she never had an empty career. Definitely, she is now very grateful that she is given another chance to pursue her bright acting career after the accident.
