Arnold Schwarzenegger has reportedly been involved in a multi-vehicle crash that resulted in a woman being taken to hospital.

The former bodybuilder and governor of California was pictured at the scene, in photos shared by the TMZ website, in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon.

A spokesperson for Mr Schwarzenegger told the BBC the actor was behind the wheel of his SUV at the time of the incident but was unharmed.

The four-vehicle collision took place just after 4.30pm local time on Sunset Boulevard, the Los Angeles police department confirmed.

“There was a collision about 4.35pm on Sunset and Allenford Avenue,” an LAPD spokesperson said.

“It was a four-vehicle traffic collision (and) fire departments and paramedics transported one female to a local hospital with an abrasion to her head.

“Neither alcohol nor drugs are suspected as a factor in this and all parties remained at the scene.”
