Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s LeVar Burton‘s car was rear-ended this weekend.
It’s bad enough to get pulled over by a cop, but it’s worse when an accident is caused as a result of that minor traffic stop.
Burton was stopped by the police in Van Nuys, California, for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
The actor dutifully pulled over, but then evidently stopped a bit too suddenly, causing the cop car behind him to hit his car, causing damage to one corner of Burton’s car.
“I’m fine; everybody’s fine,” said Burton, who emerged from his vehicle wearing a Reading Rainbow shirt. “Nobody died; nobody got hurt; it’s all good.”
The good news? Burton didn’t receive a ticket.
